There are two parts of life: the visible one, measured in time and deeds and the invisible, measured in feelings and yearnings. The visible life of mankind has become more and more meaningless from birth to death everything is predictable, divided on years and days:
The kindergarten years
The school years
Annual leave from work
For what good?
The life of the soul where it exists is out of time. Our time show the quality of our life. What do we think of? Christ said that where is our treasure, there is our heart. Let us get rid of the yoke of vain concerns, of the fear for tomorrow, of the coldness brought by the fatigue and boredom to do useless things to take the yoke of Christ upin us, as His yoke is good and His burden is light.
I wish you all a new year full of exalting spiritual experiences, full of new meanings, of fulfilled love and warm yearnings, which to approach our hearts and raise them as an oblation to the good Christ. Let us do not forget about God and do not multiply the bad.
Let the wounds of the soul be healed and let Christ fulfill you.
Forgive me and mention my name with good feelings. With a yearning for good and love I wish to you all: Happy New Year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR !
