Letters of the clergy of the Holy Monastery of Balaam

  



  The magnificent abbot John Christ in us

Sometimes it is good to mention one's past sins, because it gives birth to humiliation.

But if the remembrance of past sins causes despair, it is now obvious how the enemy tries in this way to disturb the soul.

Do not listen to him, pacify, do not grieve, do not lose your courage but try to drive away with prayer such memories that cause you unrest.

The Holy Spirit says through the mouth of the prophet Ezekiel: "And if the wicked one return from all his iniquities, he shall not always be offended."

The Lord does not want the sinner to die.

So you too should live for your family, be wise as a serpent and whole as a dove; do not talk to them about your inner life, they will not understand you.

If your husband ever stumbles, be patient and do not be upset, but pray even more, bearing in mind how you once stumbled.

I always remember you in my prayers and you do not forget me.

May the merciful Lord help you in your affairs.
