Many times, Christ comes, and He knocks on your door. You have Him sit in the living room of your soul, but you are absorbed with your tasks and forget the Great Visitor. He waits for you to appear, waits and when you are too late, He gets up and leaves. Another time you’re so busy that you answer Him from the window. You don’t even have the time to open the door.
Saint Amphilochios (Makris) of Patmos
