Away from God
Man never feared poverty, sickness, and death so much, as he fears them now that he does not fear God.
Fotis Kontoglou (1895-1965)
Why can’t you see it?
God has many eyes and sees everywhere. God knows what is in your mind even before it moves to formulate a thought. So why don’t you see it? The vision of God is the knowledge of God.
What should we ask ?
We should ask only for mercy of the remission of our sins and diligence in the purity of the soul, and God’s things come of their own accord without our asking.
St. Joseph the Hesychast
