Difficult to loose2 August 2021
Let’s bind ourselves tightly in order to carry out the Lord’s commandments, so that we’re not bound tightly with the chains of wicked impulses and soul-destroying pleasures. These are difficult to loose and we don’t want to suffer the verdict on the barren fig tree: ‘Cut it down from its roots, because it’s a waste of space’. Because all those who don’t bear good fruit are cut down and cast into the fire.
Saint Theodoros of Edessa
