The protection of heaven

27 January 2020

There’s a cataclysm worse than that of water: the inundation of the passions. When the passions begin to burn, when they start to smoke and blacken, when they exude their stench and spread it everywhere, where we will flee and who will save us? Only under the hand of God, only under His protection, in the refuge from on high. The cataclysm of the passions almost engulfed David, but he escaped and found refuge in the strong arm of the Lord Most High. He escaped the fire, the smoke and the stench of the passions consuming him and found shelter in heavenly protection.
