In a mysterious way

20 November 2016


Abba Pimin said something wonderful: ‘Stay close to a person who fears God and then you’ll have fear of God, as well’. Who are they who really fear God? Those who are passionless, virtuous, saintly people who never cease to repent. How much we owe to such people when we encounter them, how much we owe to the fact that we’re with them and that, in some mysterious way they stimulate our heart to pray.
