'The synergy of divine grace and human freedom...'


Dear Parish Faithful,

GREAT LENT - The Fourth Day

"Grace is a presence of God within us which demands constant effort on our part; these efforts, however, in no way determine grace, nor does grace act upon our liberty as if it were external or foreign to it... 
"Eastern tradition has always asserted simultaneity in the synergy of divine grace and human freedom."

Vladimir Lossky (+1958)
