Illumined Path: Either One Or The Other

From “Letters To Spiritual Children” by Abbot Nikon:

Illumined PathIt is impossible to love God if one has bad feelings towards even a single individual. Understandably so. Love and hostility cannot exist in the same soul: either one or the other.

If there is love for one’s neighbor, it will generate love for God.

Illumined Path, providing reflections on finding Christ in our everyday lives, is a ministry of St. Elia the Prophet Orthodox Christian Church in Akron, Ohio.
