St Theodore the Studite’s “Letter to the Nun Anna”:

“You are not able, because of the sickly condition of your body, to fast and afflict yourself harshly. Bear this without grieving, bringing what you can to the Lord and filling up what you lack in ascetic practices by an abundance of humility.”

Blessed words shared at Ora Et Labora.

  1. One of the many joys of Orthodoxy for me is that it calls us to such a high standard, but takes into accounts our personal situation and struggles. Thanks and praise be to God.
