Elder Joseph the Hesychast: "Why should you despair?"

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Savior (source)
"Since our sweet Jesus is so good, compassionate and kind, why should you despair ? We seek one small thing from Him, and He gives us so much! We ask for one beam of light , and He gives us Himself as all Light, Truth, and Love. So humble yourself and rest all your hope in Him."
-Elder Joseph the Hesychast

Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
