A spiritual rose

On 11th of June we honor the memory of St. Luke of Simferopol (Crimea).

Saint Luke the surgeon , or Saint Luke of Simferopol , is a saint of our time and a doctor who performed the first organ transplant which was kept as a secret because of his Christian faith.

In his wise words :

“The rose does not speak, but puts forth a strong fragrance. We too, should put forth fragrance, pour forth spiritual fragrance, the fragrance of Christ. The fragrance of our deeds should be heard from far around: good, pure, and righteous deeds, full of love. Only thus can the Kingdom of God appear within our hearts, appearing not through words, but with power. Amen.”

–St. Luke of Simferopol,Crimea .
