"The one who loves God, loves not only men, his brothers, but loves as well all of nature since it is God's blessing. Someone will rush to get a piece of the clothes or of something else that belonged to a saint, and kiss it devoutly, because he knows he receives from it the saint's blessing. It's the same with nature's trees, grasses, flowers everything is God's blessing. We embrace all of it with the same rush of love, especially those fruits that nourish us."
An Athonite Father [058]
