Short Cut To Salvation

Orthodox Catholic Monastery

“I often hear people saying, ‘Alas, how shall I be saved? I haven’t the strength to fast, I don’t know how to keep vigil, I can’t live in virginity, I couldn’t bear to leave the world—so how can I be saved?’ How? I will tell you how. Forgive and you will be forgiven … here is a short cut to salvation. And I will show you another, what is that? Judge not, it says, and you will not be judged. So here is another path without fasting or vigil or labor. … The person who judges before Christ’s coming is Antichrist, because such a person abrogates the position that belongs to Christ.” – St Anastasios of Sinai
