St. Paisios on trials

Christ being tempted in the wilderness (source)
Trials do good. Do not be afraid.

Our Christ struggled for forty days in the desert, but later he was served by Angels.

Our Christ is very loving.

Continuously, for our benefit, he allows great sorrow. For a short time we think that He has abandoned us, but because He feels sorrow, afterwards He loves us, He chokes us with His mercy, with His love.

Never fear, only love our Christ.
(amateur translation from source)
St. Paisios the Athonite (source)
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
