Changeless Love & Murderers

St. Maximus writes (it turns out quite prophetically) about the fruits of love. He has this to say:

"The one who has zealously acquired the fruits of love does not change from it even though he experiences countless ills. And let Stephen, Christ's disciple, and those like him, persuade you, as well as Christ himself who prays for his murderers and asks forgiveness of his Father as for those acting in ignorance."

St. Maximus pray for us that we, together with you and all the glorious martyrs, may attain to that changeless love!
