Letters from Father Seraphim

I am thankful for time to read this week. Letters from Fr. Seraphim has been a blessing, both encouraging my heart and allowing me to feel close to Fr. Seraphim again, as I did when reading Father Seraphim Rose: His Life and Works.

Paschal Encouragement from page 112:

May the joy of our risen Savior be abundantly with you on these bright and radiant days of Pascha, and may you ever preserve the grace which you have received as a free gift from Him! Let no temptation overcome you, no darkness cloud your path, and no trial come upon you in which you do not immediately turn to Christ our All-merciful God, Who has trampled upon death and abolished the power of the devil.

Remain in Christ's grace and He will guide you all to salvation. Remember the end of our life, the never-setting day of Christ's Kingdom, and you will know why you are alive and for what you are striving. Christ is Risen!
