November 20

None of the painful things that happen to us every day will injure or distress us once we perceive and continually meditate on their purpose. It is on account of this that St Paul says: “I take delight in weakness, insults and hardships’ (2 Corinthians 12:10); and: ‘All who seek to live a holy life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution’ (2 Timothy 3:12). To Him be glory through all the ages. Amen.

~St Philotheos of Sinai
