Persistently and unceasingly13 August 2022
Run to Christ, begging him constantly and fervently, as the blind man in Jericho once did: ‘Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me’. And he’ll ask you mystically, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’. You, who are blind in your soul, will say: ‘Lord, I want to regain my sight’. Seeing your faith, your repentance, the fervor of your supplication, he’ll have pity on you and will cure you, granting you light in your soul.
Saint Symeon the New Theologian
