Elder Pavlos of Sinai (+March 1, 2020):


Elder Pavlos of Sinai (+March 1, 2020):

"The greatest consolation is the acquisition of peace in the soul."

LIVING IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD

—Tell us about the Divine consolation that life on Mt. Sinai brings.

—We need to be simpler. A child, simple by nature, rejoices in everything. Everything pleases him. He has no problems. And if someone grows up and remains a child in his soul, he lives wonderfully! He who does not judge knows that non-condemnation brings peace to the soul. 

When a man has peace within himself, he also has great consolation! 

Therefore, it’s no accident that the Church prays at every service: “Again and again in peace let us pray to the Lord,” “For the peace from above … let us pray to the Lord.” We lose peace through inattentiveness. And even we monks get distracted. But if we manage to remain as simple as children in our souls, to not condemn, to pray, and to have peace in our souls and live in the presence of God, then this is the greatest comfort.
