Выдающийся церковный деятель, переводчик и писатель преподобный Максим Грек оставил после себя богатое духовное наследие. Начав свой подвижнический путь в афонской обители, всю свою жизнь святогорский старец стремился стяжать евангельский разум и чистоту сердца. В день памяти преподобного предлагаем прикоснуться к духовной мудрости Максима Грека.

1. Не столько отец печется о своих детях, сколько Преблагой наш Создатель и Промыслитель промышляет и печется о тех, которые право в Него веруют и твердо уповают на Него.

2. Если действительно желаем получить такую неизглаголанную Божественную радость Господа нашего Иисуса Христа, то приобретем одежду, соответствующую такой радости, сотканную от дел правды и милосердия, чтобы возмогли мы наслаждаться этой Божественной радостью в нескончаемые веки.

3. Следует нам прилежно наблюдать, чтобы поститься и духовно, воздерживаясь от всех душевных страстей, кои суть: зависть, ревность, любоимение, лукавство, пронырливость, ложь, лицемерие, жидовское сребролюбие и богомерзкое лихоимство, и причина всех зол- гордость. Полное воздержание от этих душепагубных страстей есть истинный и Богу благоприятный пост; а одно только воздержание в пище не только не приносит нам пользы, но и служит поводом большего осуждения, уподобляя нас бесам.

4. Кто с прилежанием, несомненной верой и теплейшим желанием исполняет заповеди Христа Спасителя с намерением угодить Богу, а не людям, тот у Него и Им признан будет и наречется иноком, хотя бы окончил настоящую жизнь и в мирском звании. Ибо не в перемене лишь одежды и не в воздержании от некоторых брашен заключается и похваляемо бывает христианское благочестие, но в перемене от злых языческих нравов и в воздержании от всякого зла и душевредных страстей плоти и духа.

5. Ужасное, воистину, ужасное дело — желание золота, и оно, по апостолу, служит причиной всех зол. Оно никогда не перестает, но чем более удовлетворяется, тем более разжигается у лихоимца. Страсть сребролюбия и лихоимства подобна огню: как огонь чем более найдет вещества, тем сильнее разгорается, так и желание золота всегда более и более разгорается в ненасытном сердце любителя богатства.
