Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers

psalm118_2

It is not the first 'Blessed are they that search out His testimonies,' but 'Blessed are the blameless in the way' (Ps. 118: 2, 1). Hence the primary condition is to enter into the way of truth with experienced moral conduct and oriented towards the seeking of a life without fault by the practice of the virtue normally known as probity. Then follows the scrutiny of the testimonies of God, and to have, for their searching out, a soul that has been purified and corrected. St. Hilary of Poitiers quoted in the Epilogue to The Lament of Eve by Johanna Manley.
