Sorrows bring us closer to God. And when we think the eternal profit we get from sorrows, we should not be sad.
St. John the Chrysostom
Since God is preparing for us the crown of Ηis Kingdom, then illness should become a cause for virtues.
St. Basil the Great
How do we talk with someone else
Before you listen to the other person, you should not respond. First listen carefully and patiently. “To answer before listening— that is folly and shame.” (Book of Proverbs 18, 13)
St. Seraphim of Sarov
