Weekly Quote 6-7-17

Unite your soul to God by means of hearty faith and you will be able to accomplish everything. Do powerful, invisible, ever watchful enemies wage war against you? You will conquer them. Are these enemies visible, outward? You will conquer them also. Do passions rend you? You will overcome them. Are you crushed with sorrows? You will get over them. Have you fallen into despondency? You will obtain courage. With faith you will be able to conquer everything, and even the Kingdom of Heaven will be yours. Faith is the greatest blessing of the earthly life; it unites the man to God, and makes him strong and victorious through Him. β€˜He that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit.’
— Saint John Of Kronstadt
