BEFORE YOU SPEAK
Before you speak, say the Jesus Prayer two or three times to get some light in you.
Saint Paisios the Hagiorite
THE HEALING MUD
They cursed and insulted you. A good sign! Do not lose self-control! It is healing mud! Without it, you might be flying in the clouds with the wings of pride. So, the Lord, who loves you, allowed this mud to fall on you, so that you may be humbled.
Saint Theophane the Recluse
