St. Seraphim of Sarov: The Lord sometimes allows people who are devoted . . .

Orthodox Church Quotes

Icon of St. Seraphim of Sarov“The Lord sometimes allows people who are devoted to Him to fall into such dreadful vices; and this is in order to prevent them from falling into a still greater sin–pride.

Your temptation will pass and you will spend the remaining days of your life in humility. Only do not forget your sin.”

— St. Seraphim of Sarov
