To escape

24 February 2023

Constantly free yourself of all earthly things so that you can escape the snares and wicked words and deeds. Don’t relax for even a moment by examining a wicked thought. Don’t let a wicked thought extend its stay in your soul. Always turn to God in prayer, fasting and tears, so that you can avoid all the traps, the stumbling-blocks and the passions.
