“We have within us deeply rooted weaknesses, passions, and defects. This can not all be cut out with one sharp motion, but patience, persistence, care and attention. The path leading to perfection is long. Pray to God so that he will strengthen you.

Don’t let anything deprive you of hope.” – St Nektarios #orthodoxquotes #orthodoxy #stnektarios #stnektariosquotes
