Something like the evil eye

2 December 2021

When we look askance at somebody, some wicked force comes out from us and is transferred to the other person, just as the voice is transmitted through sound waves, and they really do suffer some ill. It’s like the evil eye, when one person has wicked thoughts about another. It’s not God who causes the harm but the evil thoughts of us people. It isn’t God punishing us but our wicked intention being transmitted to the soul of the other person in a mysterious manner which causes damage. Christ never wants harm to come to anyone.

Saint Porfyrios Kavsokalyvitis
