Don’t lose heart

18 January 2023

If, at the time of prayer, or, indeed, other times, the enemy fills your mind with coarse thoughts, don’t despair. Keep saying to yourself: ‘The Lord came to earth so that I might be cleansed from these thoughts and from others like them’. In general, don’t lose heart over any sin, but hope in God’s almighty help and mercy.

Saint John Kronstadtskij
