[...]Now is the time to pray. You need it, our fellow human beings who are being tested need it.
And do not forget that if you are well, there will be others around you. That if you have light you will offer it to others. If you find peace in your speech, in your ways and in your form, then those around you will calm the turmoil of their minds.
If you want the darkness to go away, become light ......
[...] How nice it is for someone to love you not only for what you were or are, but also for what you can become. Then he believes in you, strengthens you and strengthens you. This is God's love for man. God believes in us even when we do not believe in Him.
How important is it to look to the future? To believe and hope for the best that has not yet come but is yet to come. Do not let the past take you swallows, but to say "with God's help everything will be fine. "Nothing ended yesterday, everything starts again tomorrow." This is how the great prophet of the church Agios Symeon, Theodochos, lived, looking to the future of God. Waiting for tomorrow that has not yet come.
