Do not be disturbed
If you have succumbed to any sin or weakness, do not be disturbed, do not add another wound to the wound. Take with courage the road to correction and try to maintain the peace of soul.
Saint Seraphim of Sarov
A Holy chain
You should know that virtues are tied together forming a holy chain. Thus, prayer begins with love. Love from joy. The joy of meekness. Meekness from humility. Humility from ministry to others. Ministry from hope. Hope from faith. Faith from obedience. Obedience from simplicity.
Saint Makarios from Egypt
Translated by Dr. Nick Stergiou
