Then the ice melts9 March 2022
When I turn the whole of my being towards the spiritual sun, Christ my God, the sun of righteousness, then I feel full of light, warmth and peace. Then the ice round my soul melts and the darkness disperses, together with putrefaction and sin. Spiritual death is banished, in its place reigns heavenly life, and nothing earthly troubles me at all.
Saint John Kronstadtskij
