“’But I am in the midst of you, as He that serveth’ (Luke 22:27).
I shall not attain Jesus, if I seek him reigning in the place of honor. I have to look for Him and find Him in that place where He is hiding, in the last place, in His suffering and humiliated members. It is because they are not looking for Him there that so many men cannot believe in Him or have only a nominal faith in Him. Zacchaeus had to come down from his sycamore in order to join Jesus in the crowd.”
(A Monk of the Eastern Church, Jesus, a Dialogue with the Savior, p. 64)
