St. Seraphim of Sarov: "The fact that I am a monk ..."


Saint Seraphim of Sarov says:

“The fact that I am a monk and you are a layman is of no importance. The Lord listens equally to the monk and to the man of the world provided both are true believers. 

The Lord looks for a heart full of true faith into which to send His Spirit. For the heart of a man is capable of containing the Kingdom of God. 

The Holy Spirit and the Kingdom of God are one.”
