To Want Your Own Way...

Dear Parish Faithful,

Great Lent - The Thirty Ninth Day

From The Sayings of the Egyptian Fathers

Always to want your own way,
becoming accustomed to having it,
always to seek the easy path -
all this leads straight to depression.

But love, quietness, and contemplation of the inner life
cleanse our hearts.
