Elder Sophrony: “what abandonment by God is”

20 August 2016




“The earthly life is for us a continual Judgment of God. If we follow Christ’s commandments, then the Grace of the Holy Spirit will come to us; but when we depart from them (even in small ways), God leaves us and we feel that abandonment about which outsiders do not even know. They do not understand what abandonment by God is”.
Elder Sophrony of Essex

    Thank you. Photo and typo corrected. I thought that photo didn’t look right when I posted it. Wish I’d been more careful.
