The Saints of Each Generation Form a Kind of Golden Chain

St. Symeon the New Theologian

St. Symeon the New Theologian writes,

In such a sequence all of them together form a kind of golden chain, each Saint being a...

Proper Orthodox Priestly Attire and Appearance According to the Saints

"Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain..." (Prov. 31:30). "Do not be conformed to this world..." (Rom.12:2).

(The following is a conversation between St. Iakavos of Evia and his spiritual child[ren]):

St. Iakavos: "“When we put on the cassock, we begin with the goal of sanctifying our soul. Care is necessary, however. For love of the world’s honor and glory, our egotism can make us lose our soul, rather than sanctify it... Priests shouldn’t cut their hair....

"The priest's cassock is the flag of the Church of our Christ: for this reason we must try hard to honor it, we who wear it, with a holy life, so that those who don't wear it will honor and respect it." - St. Amphilochios of Patmos
