“Nor should you pray “Oh God free me from my anger, my sorrow, etc.”. It is not good to pray about or think about the specific passion; something happens in our soul and we become even more enmeshed in this passion. Attack your passion head on and you’ll see how strongly it will entwine you, angry you, and you will not be able to do anything.”

– Elder Porphyrios, in Wounded by Love
