Benefit from Trials…

“That’s how we should think always. And that’s how we should live toward difficulties and tragedies. We should see them all as opportunities for prayer, for approaching God. That’s the secret: how the man of God will transform everything into prayer. That’s what St. Paul the Apostle means when he says I rejoice in my sufferings, in all the tribulations he encountered. This is how sanctfiication takes place. May God grant this to us. I asked for this fervently in my prayer.”
Elder Porphyrios
