==QuoteQuotation==:''We have the following understanding and opinion concerning those who receive the holy Mysteries of the Body and Blood of the Lord, that if persons have some small human sins that are readily forgiven, such as: being robbed [committing a sin] by the tongue or hearing or eyes or by vainglory or by sorrow or anger or such things as these, that once they rebuke themselves and make confession to God let them thus receive the holy Mysteries. We believe that the reception of the holy Mysteries for such persons is unto the cleansing of sins.''<supref>[http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/praxis/hesychios.aspxIntroduction to the Philokalic Writings of the Blessed Hesychios]from ''Elder Basil of Poiana Marului: Spiritual Father of St. Paisy Velichkovsky''</supref>
