October 22

For as long as you live do not abandon prayer even for a single day on the excuse of illness. Heed St Paul, who says, ‘When I am weak, then I am strong’ (2 Corinthians 12:10). If you act in this spirit, your profit will be greater, and the prayer–grace assisting–will soon make you well. Wherever the Spirit brings solace, illness and listlessness are short-lived.

~Theoliptos, Metropolitan of Philadelphia
