'The only place where modern man does not like to visit - is himself. He cannot hear the silence, he does not want to hear the voice of his conscience. But without knowing yourself you can not know God. Modern man lives in a shadowy world of TV, the media, the Internet, but the greatest reality in the world is the human soul. Inside we can open up the kingdom of heaven, in our heart God wants to be born!”[Bishop Panteleimon (Shatov)-21st Century Russian Hierarch]
Sts. Peter and Febronia

An amazing photo! A guy is kissing humbly the hand of an Eastern Orthodox priest. That’s a proof that looks don’t matter at all, our soul does :)
