“I have a heart, and I have many afflictions. But ‘the afflictions of the present time lead to glory in the age to come’, and so I don’t reckon them as anything. Daily I see my grave, that I am a dead man. But within this dead flesh dwells an Eternal Soul. I care for my Soul which is something Eternal. Because of this, my child, you also should care for your Soul, near the Fathers of the Church.”
