God grant you all many years!
The time is not yours. At present you are strangers, and sojourners, and foreigners, and aliens. Do not seek honors, do not seek glory, do not seek authority, nor revenge. Bear all things, and in this way, redeem the time. Give up many things...only preserve the principal thing, I mean the faith.
- Saint John Chrysostom
