Quote of the Week - Elder Paisios the Athonite

"We mustn't despair when we struggle and continuously see nothing but the slightest progress. We all do nearly nothing, some a little more, some a little less. When Christ sees our little effort He gives us an analogous token, and so our nearly nothing becomes valuable and we can see a little progress. For this reason we mustn't despair, but hope in God." -- Elder Paisios the Athonite

Christians must not despair when they struggle and see very little progress.

Indeed, it would behoove Christians to pray to Christ and ask Him for His help, in order to resolve their predicament.
