Hidden Shall Become Visible

"There is a program in everything man does. His inheritance and everything he does comes from deep inside of him. And those [things] carve on his face features either beautiful or ugly, according to the way he lives his life. But these also carve themselves into man's inner being. Now they are invisible. One does not see the consequences on other forms. One can only notice them on the face. But in the end, when the age of man is concluded, then the final result of all his thoughts and deeds will occur. Everything he did will contribute to the shaping of a his being in a certain way, and his external appearance will show everything he did in his life, everything he thought. We can't see it now, but it will be visible then. We say during the service: 'When the books shall open for the Divine Judgment … those things that are hidden shall become visible.'"

- Hieroschemamonk Petroniu

"On February 22, 2011, Hieroschemamonk Petroniu (T─ânase) reposed in the Lord."

May his memory be eternal!
