John of Kronstadt: “Every man on earth is sick with the fever of sin”

“Every man on earth is sick with the fever of sin, with the blindness of sin and is overcome with its fury. As sins consist mostly of malice and pride, it is necessary to treat everyone who suffers from the malady of sin with kindness and love. This is an important truth, which we often forget. Very often we act in the opposite manner: we add malice to malice by our anger, we oppose pride with pride. Thus, evil grows within us and does not decrease; it is not cured – rather it spreads”

    Here is a little more information on the word “malice”:

    “The forbidden fruit in the Bible was not an apple. It only became known as an apple when the Bible was translated into Latin in the 4th century, because the word ‘Malus’ means both apple and evil.”
