Glorification to Saint Arsenios the Cappadocian (St. Paisios the Athonite)

 By St. Paisios the Athonite

Father Arsenios (Hatzefendis) preached Orthodoxy correctly with his orthodox life.

In asceticism, he withered his flesh out of his fervent love for God and transformed souls with his Divine Grace.

He believed a lot and healed many, believers and unbelievers.

Few words, many miracles.

He lived a lot and hid a lot.

Within his hard shell there hid his spiritually sweet fruit.

A very strict father to himself, but also a very affectionate father to his spiritual children.

He did not beat them with the law, but with philotimo, with the meaning of the law.

As a Liturgist of the Most High he hovered above the earth and as a Co-Liturgist he shined among the people.

God glorified him, because his holy life continually glorified the name of God, to Whom belongs all glory forever. Amen.
