The Best Medicine?

Updated: Apr 11, 2022

Patience is the strongest medicine that heals great and long-lasting trials. Most trials are endured only with patience.

Elder Paisios

Great patience can resolve many problems and bring about Divine results, especially when you do not expect a solution. God provides the best solution. You should know that God is pleased when a person goes through trials and endures them without grumbling, giving glory to His Holy Name. Saint James says, "Blessed is the one who endureth temptation." Therefore, we should pray that the good God provides us with - patience - so that we will endure everything - not without grumbling, but with praise.
