A fire that warms and kindles the heart.

God is a fire that warms and kindles the heart and inward parts. And so, if we feel in our hearts coldness, which is from the devil—for the devil is cold—then let us call upon the Lord, and He will come and warm our hearts with perfect love not only for Him, but for our neighbor as well. And from the presence of warmth the coldness of the hater of good will be driven away.  -St. Seraphim of Sarov

On July 19 we commemorate the uncovering of the relics of the Venerable Seraphim of Sarov.
