THE TIPS OF A LARGE PARTY

.
"WHEN WATER IS CLEANED AND LINIASTITE, YOU ARE SEEING UP YOU. THAT IS AND MIGHT ... "

Several studies have shown, in turn, the benefits of the belief in health. In the latest of these, Ohio State University psychologists have confirmed this truth, stating that there is even a correlation between faith and longevity, and claiming that atheists live less than believers.

The benefits of faith have been linked to the way of life of the religious man, to the practices that support physical health and eliminate stress, all of which, of course, improve the quality of life.

In this context, the exhortations of the Most Holy Jerome of Eghine are more present than ever, for Avva Ieronim never forgets to remember the struggle with his own mind to prevent sins and thus to keep our soul clean.

"Be attentive to your mind. You do not enslave her with anything. I regret that I built churches, that I have enslaved my mind with many worries and prevented her from praying. " And he added: "Be very careful with your mind. Do not burden her with sadness and unnecessary problems. When the water is clean and quiet, you see deep down and you can even see a pebble. So is it with the mind ... It does not matter that the mind often escapes from prayer and the words we pronounce, to be careful not to scatter ourselves! She will come back. The mind resembles a small chicken. He runs away, runs around, stays close to his mother who is connected to a place. But when he gets tired, he gets back to sleep and sleep at her feet ...

Whatever the thoughts would come and anything they would do, they are foreign. Let's face them as much as we can and throw them away! We do not have to get hurt because of them. Let us be very careful about our deeds. Thoughts are foreign, the other suggests. They will disappear "(...)

"Without fighting it is impossible to acquire virtues. Avoid the empty words! As far as I am concerned, I have been a priest for over forty years at Eghina and I did not eat at anybody. When I insist, I accept at most a coffee! Boldness, familiarity, and too much freedom weaken man's resilience: the tempter then slowly enters into it, and evil habits settle. So it's good to keep your distance. "

"When the mind of man is purified and illuminated - for it has its own enlightenment, independent of the divine grace, with which, as the Fathers say, it sees beyond the demons - it also receives the enlightenment of divine grace, he can constantly dwell in it and give him visions and contemplations. If man has the desire to see and learn a few things that interest him, he can ask for it in prayer; grace will work to fulfill its demand. "

The Monk of Jerusalem has remained us not only as a great confessor and ascetic, but also as a "lover of men." He was born in 1883 in Caesarea in today's Turkey, named Vasile Apostolidis. His life exemplified, his incitement to repentance, the zeal with which he served God and the people he counted among the great contemporary Fathers of the Church.
