Life is blessedness

by abbamoses

Life is blessedness, and not simply because we believe in blessed eternity; but here on earth life can be blessed, if we live with Christ, fulfilling His holy commandments. If a man is not tied to earthly goods, but will in all things rely only on God, will live for Christ and in Christ, then life here on earth will become blessed.

St. Barsanuphius of Optina +1913
