There is still time for endurance, time for patience, time for healing, time for change – Saint Basil the Great (+379)

There is still time for endurance, time for patience, time for healing, time for change. Have you slipped? Rise up. Have you sinned? Cease. Do not stand among sinners, but leap aside.

—Saint Basil the Great (+379)

HOLY CONFESSION OF YOUR HEART

—Saint Basil the Great (+379)
