As We Approach the Great Fast-
Let us remember God’s mercy and love to us and in return, let us show mercy and love to our brothers and sisters!
Seven brothers were ill in one hospital. One recovered from his illness and got up and rushed to serve his other brothers with brotherly love, to speed their recovery. Be like this brother. Consider all men to be your brothers, and sick brothers at that. And if you come to feel that God has given you better health than others, know that it is given through mercy, so in health you may serve your frailer brothers.”
Saint Nikolai Velimirovich
