Root out

7 July 2019

St John Chrysostom, end of the 13th century, from Vatopedi Monastery IN R

When people want to root out some passion which has wormed its way into their hearts and become established there over time, it isn’t enough to give advice for one or two days in order to correct this passion.

We have to talk lots of times over many days, provided, of course, we’re aiming at profit and benefit, rather than mere pleasantries and an outward show.
