“It is only through the power of God that we are saved,” Patriarch Kirill wrote. “Because of this, there is nothing more important in our lives than serving God. Our ultimate task in life, therefore, is to respond to God’s love with our obedience, trust, and willingness to follow His commandments. If we do this, we will be able to put the priorities of our lives in the correct order and we will be able to tread the paths of our lives in peace and tranquility.”
