Gleanings from Orthodox Christian Authors and the Holy Fathers


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.
