The Way of Shame is the Way of the Lord

The way of shame is the way of the Lord, and when we put ourselves in the way of the Lord, we immediately beget Him as our companion. elder-zacharias1It was through the Cross of shame that He saved us; so, when we bear a little shame for His sake, in order to repent and come to confession, He considers it as a thanksgiving to Him, and in return He gives us the comfort of the ‘Comforter.'”

-Archimandrite Zacharias of Essex
