Elder Porphyry the Kapsokalivite on Winning People Over Through Love

Elder Porphyry Bairaktaris the Kapsokalivite

You must not wage your Christian struggle with sermons and arguments, but with true secret love. When we argue, others react. When we love people, they are moved and we win them over. When we love, we think that we offer something to others, but in reality we are the first to benefit.
