Soul Searching


Soul Searching. Step One.

If you wish to save your soul,

You must first stop running away from your self.

Find a place where you can be all alone.

Sit down. Be quiet. Be still.

Cleanse your mind from every anxious, worldly thought.

Open the door of your heart and pray for the gift of repentance.

Learn how to want this gift, how to beg for it, even more than anything else.

Remember that apart from the Lord you are powerless to take the first step.

He is the only one who can help you.

Begin anew.

Start over.

Never give in to despair.

Hope in God.

Do this everyday for the rest of your life.

– Fr. Paul Jannakos
