Seeing the gap

14 December 2021

Since we’re Christians and want to imitate the life of Christ and to be truly united with him, we should look at how he lived, what he was like and how we are. When we see the gap that separates us, then, according to Saint Païsios, ‘sweet pain’ will be engendered in our soul. This is what begets repentance, humility and tears. Unless we’re so arrogant and sick that we say we’re already very close to being like Christ.
