St. Arsenia of Ust-Medvedits
Nothing can be more useful for a man than to know his own limitations.
Without God, without His help and grace, man can’t even approach the concept of spiritual goodness.
The dignity and nobility of man is not so much in the privileges he received from his ancestors as in those good qualities of the soul that he acquired by working on himself.
The Lord doesn’t leave a man’s labors without recompense.
In addition to her holy life, St. Arsenia left us valuable writings on the spiritual life, which we present in honor of the anniversary of her canonization.
