      - ...Orthodox Christians of these latter times are indeed spiritually
      sleeping and desperately need to be awakened by a trumpet of the Spirit
      like Saint Symeon [the New Theologian]. Those who are Orthodox by birth
      and habit are not those who will inherit the eternal Kingdom of Heaven;
      they must be awakened to the conscious fulfillment of Christ's
      commandments and a conscious reception of God's Holy Spirit, as Saint
      Symeon so eloquently taught.
      - ...For Saint Symeon, as for all true Orthodox Christians, theology is
      life; the true "words of God" which speak to the Christian heart, raise
      it from its sloth and negligence, and inspire it to struggle for the
      eternal Kingdom, which may be tasted in advance even now in the life of
      grace which God sends down upon His faithful through His sanctifying Holy
      Spirit. Fr Seraphim Rose

      POGLEDI
      - …Pravoslavni Hriscani ovih kasnih dana zaista duhovno spavaju i ocajnicki
      ih treba probuditi trubom Duha kao sto je Sveti Simeon (Novi Bogoslov).  Oni
      koji su Pravoslavni po rodjenju i navici nisu ti koji ce naslediti vecno
      Carstvo Nebesko; vec se moraju probuditi svesnim ispunjavanjem Hristovih
      zapovesti i svesnim primanjem Bozijeg Duha Svetoga, kako je to Sveti Simeon
      tako recito poducavao.

      - …Za Svetog Simeona, kao i za sve istinske Pravoslavne Hriscane, bogoslovlje
      je zivot; istinske "reci Bozije" govore Hrisccanskom srcu, podizu ga iz
      tromosti i nepaznje, i nadahnjuju ga da se bori za vecno Carstvo, koje se i
      sada, ovde na zemlji, unapred moze oprobati u zivotu milosti koju Bog salje
      na Svoje verne preko Svog Prosvecujuceg Svetog Duha.
