Our modern man puts too much heart
into trifles and details, is assaulted by a lot of false things and does
not know how to choose… Our contemporary man has become too
materialistic, a subject to the new tyrant: money. Everywhere we look,
we hear that money is everything, the master of this world. He, who
makes money his master, makes himself a servant to the devil.
– Elder Justin Parvu, 20th Century Romanian staretz
