Why does love between brothers weaken?

  • February 17, 2017

An elder said: When your love for your brothers weakens this happens because you receive the thoughts of suspicion, you trust in your heart and you don’t want to suffer against your will. First you should want, helped by God, not to believe in your suspicions and with all tenacity and power you should humble yourself before your brothers and cut your will for their sake.
