“for all of us paralytics . . .”
“In the lives of each one of us there will still be moments of weakness and failures, of what we call paralysis. They can last for many years, just as with the paralytic at the Sheep pool, of which the Gospel speaks. This paralytic lay for many years awaiting healing. But he believed that a messenger of God would come and heal him.”
Archimandrite Tikhon (Shevkunov) is from the Sretensky Monastery in Moscow, Russia.
