Showing love and not anger ( St. John of Kronstadt )

As sins consist mostly of malice and pride, it is necessary to treat everyone who suffers from the malady of sin with kindness and love.

This is an important truth, which we often forget. Very often we act in the opposite manner, we add malice to malice by our anger, we oppose pride to pride.

Thus, evil grows within us, and does not decrease, it is not cured, rather it spreads....

St. John of Kronstadt
