Saint Silvanus the Athonite on Two Thoughts to Avoid

St. Silvanus the Athonite

St. Silvanus the Athonite

Understand two thoughts, and fear them. One says, ‘You are saint,’ the other, ‘You won’t be saved.’ Both of these thoughts are from the enemy, and there is no truth in them. But think this way: I am a great sinner, but the Lord is merciful. He loves people very much, and He will forgive my sins.
