The world

As someone stops considering the world and connects more intensely with God, the more the Divine Grace engulfs this person and feels God’s help. This individual is blessed by the Lord, who sends His Mercy abundantly which covers this person for the entire life.

From the Ascetics by St. Isaak the Syrian

Sorrows and Tribulations

God allows sorrows and tribulations so we can get closer to Him. The sorrows must not be avoided, but be invited, so our love towards God is tested.

From the Ascetics by St. Isaak the Syrian
