Weekly Newsletter: December 4 – 10


“And he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, for he had many possessions.” The word “many” is not superfluous here, for it is not the same for those with many possessions as it is for those with few, for the chains of many possessions are stronger and more terrible. And further, if someone has not yet grown up and is childish and frivolous in his thoughts, and has an unsettled mind, let him sell his possessions, such as his anger and his lustful desires and all the evil things which spring from them. And let him give these [evil] things, no, hurl them, to the demons, who are poor, being without any good thing and without the wealth of goodness which comes from God. Then let him follow Christ. For the one who has cast off the wealth of his sins to the demons is he who is able to follow Christ. “Turn away from evil”—this means to cast off one’s wealth of wickedness to the destitute host of demons; “and do good”—this means to follow Christ and take up one’s cross. – Blessed Theophylact
