May 19

If the base of a felled tree that has grown old in earth and rock ‘will bud at the scent of water…like a young plant’ (Job 14:9), it is also possible for us to be awakened by the power of the Holy Spirit and to flower with the incorruptibility that is ours by nature, bearing fruit like a young plant, even though we have fallen into sin.

             ~St John of Karpathos
