Quotes from the Saints
Words of Salvation:
37. We must avoid doubts. When we experience a doubt, we must not enter into discussion with it. It is very common, when we are reading the Scriptures, for the demons to add their own commentary, for they too are theologians. We must not have anything to do with these "interpretations."
38. The demons want us to enter into dialogue with them. We must do everything we can to avoid this. The only way to do this is to totally ignore all their suggestions, to not pay any attention.
39. When beginning our day, without considering what happened yesterday or wondering what will happen tomorrow, we must pray. We must get back in the saddle again, like a rider, even if we think we don't even have any time for prayer. In the evening, we should go over the day, repenting and asking God's forgiveness for all of our shortcomings. Saying that we don't have time is no excuse; all that you need is a few seconds.
Elder Sergei of Vanves
