The sea, the soul of a humble man

image

“The soul of a humble man is like the sea:
throw a stone into the sea–
for a moment it will ruffle the surface a little, and then sink to the bottom.
Thus do afflictions disappear down into the heart of the humble man, because the strength of the Lord is with him.”

– St. Silouan of Mount Athos
