Wisdom of the Church Fathers and the Monastic Life
St. Tikhon of VoronezhSt. Tikhon of Voronezh
Do we forgive our neighbors their trespasses? God also forgives us in His mercy. Do we refuse to forgive? God, too, will refuse to forgive us. As we treat our neighbors, so also does God treat us. The forgiveness, then, of your sins or unforgiveness, and hence also your salvation or destruction, depend on you yourself, man. For without forgiveness of sins there is no salvation. You can see for yourself how terrible it is. — Journey to Heaven

St. Tikhon of Voronezh/Zadonsk
Wonderworker of All Russia

Orthodox Tidbits — Holy Chinese Martyrs

Holy Chinese Martyrs
The following explanation of the icon, "The Holy Chinese Martyrs & The Boxer Rebellion", is reproduced here from the St. John The Baptist, Russian Orthodox Church in Canberra, Australia written by Robert A. Arakak.

The Orthodox Church believes that the icon is a window into heaven. In other words the icon makes visible the very real but invisible reality of Christ and the saints. The Orthodox Church also believes that the icon is the word of God in visual form. In other words this icon is a visual sermon that speaks to us about the heroic faith of the Chinese Martyrs, their willingness to die for Jesus Christ.
