St. John, Archbishop of Shanghai and San Fransisco — Serving in Tunis 1952 — Surrounded by Uncreated Light.

“Sanctity is not simply virtuousness. It is the attainment of such a spiritual height that the abundance of God’s grace, filling the saint, overflows on those who associate with him. Great is the blessedness of saints in which they dwell contemplating the glory of God. Full of love for God and man, they are responsive to man’s needs, interceding before God and helping those who turn to them.” Characterizing the ancient Saints with such words Vladika John simultaneously summarized also his own spiritual aspiration which made him one of the greatest Saints of our time.
