It’s not easy

17 February 2023

The path of repentance isn’t an easy matter, it’s a process that takes long years of ascetic endeavor. It’s a delicate art and science that you learn, that you absorb from an experienced spiritual guide, from an Elder who’s lived through all the stages of repentance. Essentially, this is the quintessence of the Patristic tradition- the transmission of the torch of the spirit of repentance, of the art of sanctification, from one generation to another.
