My children, listen to what the Gospel instructs us to be. In the words of our Lord Jesus Christ: “But I say unto you, love your enemies, do good to them which hate you; bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you; unto him that smiteth thee on one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid him not to take thy coat also. Give to every one that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not again. And as you would want that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.” These directions may seem impossible. But they are not impossible, they are just “not of this world”.
~St Seraphim of Sarov
