Archbishop Michael Portrait "Spiritual glory constitutes the most positive negation of time; thus, beautiful spiritual personalities appear in front of us in unusual radiance and greatness. The life and ministry of spiritual people vibrate deeply with our innermost world with the beautiful features of their spiritual being and their moral luster. The arduous spiritual battle sanctifies the virtuous worker of the spirit."
