Maybe I am just noticing it more as I subscribe to more Orthodox Facebook pages, but it seems that the popularity of the “Orthodox meme” is increasing. It’s a simple way to express what often seem like deep spiritual truths in meme form. There is a danger in distilling a quote by a holy father into a quote meme. One is seeing a word out of context and may presuppose that this is the entirety of Orthodox spirituality. It’s not. Believe me.
But nevertheless it is good to see the wisdom from the ages at least put out into the Internet for further contemplation. May these images encourage you in your walk with God in the new year.
