Archimandrite Sergei I keep finding myself copying down quotes and going back to this article with quotes fro Archmandrite Sergei, so I thought I would post some of the quotes here, so I could find them easier in the future. I pray that they help you like they have helped me.

Elder Symeon Kragiopoulos During the time that I lived in Greece, I became familar with the monsasteries under Elder Symeon in Panorama, Thessaloniki, Greece. As a result, I have been collecting his quotes for many years and I realized that they would help many people to walk on the path of Christ.
