Blessed Feast of Sts. Peter & St. Paul 

Let this, I say, be our way of overpowering [non-believers] and our way of conducting our warfare against them: let us astound them by our way of life rather than by words. For this is the main battle, this is the unanswerable argument, the argument from conduct. For though we give ten thousand precepts of philosophy in words, if we do not exhibit a life better than theirs, the gain is nothing. For it is not what is said that draws their attention, but their enquiry is what we do; and they say, “First obey your own words, and then admonish others.” But if while you say, “Infinite are the blessings in the world to come,” you seem yourself nailed down to this world, just as if no such things existed, thus your works to me are more credible than your words. For when I see you seizing other people’s goods, weeping immoderately over the departed, doing evil in many other things, how shall I believe you that there is a resurrection? And even if people did not utter not this in words, they think it and turn it often in their minds. And this is what keeps the unbelievers from becoming Christians. Let us win them therefore by our life. Let us catch them then by our mode of life; and by these souls let us build up the Church, and of these let us amass our wealth. – St. John Chrysostom
