Wisdom from the Holy Fathers

You ask: Can one keep the sorrows which befall one from disturbing one’s peace of mind?

In order to answer this question one must differentiate one’s own peace of mind from spiritual peace which is grace-filled. Sorrows always disturb one’s peace of mind to a greater or lesser extent, but they can never disturb spiritual, grace-filled peace. For this reason we must work at acquiring this peace throughout our earthly lives.

We must, being convinced of the infirmity of our nature, pray for assistance from the Lord, and pray that God’s grace will fill our nature. Experience in recognizing our infirmity is given to us for this purpose, not to bring depression.

God’s grace is given only for humility, not for works, although humility is engendered by works. ~Selected Letters of Blessed Theophan, Archbishop of Poltava and Pereyaslavka
