Memorable words on how to live: “Love one another and forgive”.

Excerpted from the Eulogy for newly-reposed Archpriest Fr. Alexei Ohotin offered by Fr. Alexandre Antchoutine (here is a link to the full text of the eulogy):

“His final testament was this (before his death he spoke it to his grandchildren, and to all of us): observe two commandments – just two – and you will be saved. Love one another and forgive one another. Forgive every sin. All of our intrigues, all of our selfishness, and all of the things we do to hurt one another are irrelevant. Forgive them. The second is this – perform acts of charity, because through your charity the Lord will forgive your many sins.”
