St. Nectarios of Pentapolis wrote:
"Our Church honors saints not as gods, but as faithful servants, as holy men and friends of God."

St. Silouan of Holy Mt. Athos wrote about the saints:
"The Saints were people just like ourselves. Many of them stated with grievous sins but through repentance they attained the Kingdom of Heaven. And every one who comes to the Kingdom of Heaven does so through repentance which the Merciful Lord granted us by His sufferings."

St. Silouan also wrote:
"The Saints in heaven through the Holy Spirit behold the glory of God and the beauty of the Lord's Countenance."

Glory Be To GOD For All Things!
