Honor your patience


Do not be surprised that you fall every day; do not give up, but stand your ground courageously, and assuredly the angel who guards you will honor your patience.

While a wound is still fresh and warm it is easy to heal, but old, neglected and festering ones are hard to cure. They require [for their care] much treatment, cutting, plastering, and cauterization.*

Many from long neglect become incurable.

But with God all things are possible [Matthew 19:26].

– St. John Climacus

*Cauterization: noun

burn the skin or flesh of (a wound) with a heated instrument, typically to stop bleeding or prevent the wound from becoming infected.
