When the Saints Sinned They Did Not Suffer Melancholy and Depression (Metr. Athanasios of Limassol)


 

By Metropolitan Athanasios of Limassol

 

You see, the Saints, even once they sinned, had the energy to rise once more with a sure simplicity and with a wholesome perspective.
 

 

If they sinned, they repented from the underside of their hearts and to the purpose of demise, however they didn’t undergo from melancholy and despair.
 

 

 

Why ought to I do it?

 

Why did I feel it?

 

Why did I do it?

 

As if it’s a unusual factor to sin. Why do you suppose you shouldn’t have carried out it? Who do you suppose you’re?
Do you suppose you’re so nice, infallible, that you just your self may by no means fail? To commit a sin?
