On the Saints, part V

Call with faith upon the Mother of God and the Saints and pray to them.  They hear our prayers and know even our inmost thoughts.  And marvel not at this.  Heaven and all the saints live by the Holy Spirit and in all the world there is naught hidden by the Holy Spirit.  Once upon a time I did not understand how it was that the holy inhabitants of heaven could see our lives.  But when the Mother of God brought my sins home to me I realized that they see us in the Holy Spirit and know our entire lives.  St. Silouan the Athonite
