HOW TO OVERCOME TEMPTATIONS

He who wants to overcome temptations without prayer and patience, not only will not overcome them, but will become even more entangled with them.

Saint Makarios from Egypt

 

THE SOUL OF THE HUMBLE

The soul of the humble is like the sea. Throw a stone into the sea. It will disturb the surface for a while and then it will dive immediately into the depths. This is the way that sorrows sink into the heart of the humble because the power of the Lord is with him.

St. Silouan the Athonite

Translated by Dr. Nick Stergiou
