Abbot Nikon Vorobiev: “Under no circumstances should you become despondent or hopeless”

Abbot Nikon Vorobiev

“Under no circumstances should you become despondent or hopeless; this is worse than any sin. Such states lead one to spiritual death and even suicide. ‘There is no sin that cannot be forgiven, except the sin which is not repented of.” … You have no reason to despair…’Separate yourself from the world and draw closer to the Lord,’ and He will console you here and in the life to come.”

– Abbot Nikon Vorobiev, in Letters to Spiritual Children
