“If you fall, rise and you shall be saved.’ St. John of Kronstadt

St. John of Kronstadt

ΔΑΥΙΔ προφήτης _ prophet David_ Пророк Давид_ დავითი“If you fall, rise and you shall be saved.’ You are a sinner, you continually fall, learn also how to rise; be careful to acquire this wisdom. This is what the wisdom consists in: learning by heart the psalm, ‘Have mercy upon me, O God, after Thy great goodness,’ inspired by the Holy Spirit to the king and prophet David, and say it with sincere faith and trust, with a contrite and humble heart. After your sincere repentance, expressed in the words of King David, the forgiveness of your sins shall immediately shine upon you from the Lord, and your spiritual powers will be at peace. The most important thing in life is to be zealous for mutual love, and not to judge anyone. Everybody shall answer for himself to God, and you must look to yourself. Beware of malice.

 St. John of Kronstadt, My Life in Christ

Do not be surprised that you fall every day; do not give up, but stand your ground courageously. And assuredly, the angel who guards you will honour your patience. St. John of the Ladder

God descends to the humble as waters flow down from the hills into the valleys. St. Tikhon of Voronezh
