“Either we are fools for the world because of Christ or we are fools for Christ because of the world.
O how short-lived is the sound of a word of the world!
If the world would say to us ‘fool,’ the world will die and its word will die! What then is the value of its word? But if the heavenly, immortal ones say to us ‘fool,’ that will neither die nor is it removed from us as eternal condemnation.”
St. Nikolai Velimirovich
