Metropolitan Augoustinos of Florina tells us about signs of faith in a faithless world:

Amid all the coldness that transforms people’s hearts into snowballs, there are still sparks—burning coals and hearths of spiritual life in the modern world. Wherever a child stammers a quick prayer through innocent lips; wherever a boy or girl actively listens to catechetical lessons and sings joyous songs to the resurrected Lord…wherever there is a mighty battle against the dark powers…wherever there are holy pulsations; wherever hearts are warmed in reading the Scriptures—there are the sparks, the blazing coals, the spiritual hearth, the living Church.

"AFR is a Godsend, as I was received into the Russian Orthodox Church on Good Friday, April 6, 2007, and have been living in Moscow ever since. My priest is an Englishman, which helps, but of course he is busy, so I need as many English resources as possible."
