St Nektarios of Aegina: Trials

“The man who is not tested will be ignorant of the truth. Trials are an indisputable witness of God’s love and compassion for man, wherefore also he must give thanks in everything. A man’s imperfection calls for trials to perfect him; trials open the mental eyes of the lovers of God to the light of truth, and make them shine and be able to see not only what is near but also what is far away.” – St Nektarios of Aegina
