Let Christ dwell in our soul

When the soul is troubled, our logic gets blurry and we cannot see clearly. Only when the soul is calm, the logic gets illuminate and then we can see clearly the cause of every situation. If we will let Christ dwell in our soul, then the light will turn on and the darkness will go away on its own.

St Porphyrios of Kafsokalivia

 

He allows them to fall

To judge and criticize the others is a great evil. Those who do so, they actually take from God the right of judgement. This is why He allows them to fall into the same sins for which they accuse others. The reason for being judgmental is true the lack of careful observance of our own lives. Take a closer look at your own heart. How much filth is in there!

Osios Ioannis of Valamo
