“If we choose the traditions and societal structures of those around us in preference to the Church’s traditions, canons, and laws, we will soon find ourselves betraying our Christian faith. Christianity was not meant to be easy; it is often compared to doing battle. If we desire the easy comforts and pleasures of this world, we will eventually lose the battle, and we will perish. If we prefer the laws of this world over the laws of the Church, in the end we will have lost what is most essential and eternal in value.” (Abbot Tryphon)

“God’s purpose in your life is not to make everything easy. Our lives are meant to have meaning…Obviously it’s [faith] is not easy; nothing worthwhile ever is. ” (Beth Moore, Paul Petit)
