"When I Put Wood In the Fire" (St. Paisios the Athonite)

When I put wood in the fire, I glorify God and say: "Warm up, my God, all those who do not have warmth."

When again I burn my letters that are sent to me - I read them and I burn them, because they have issues and questions and confessions - I say: "May God burn all their shortcomings. May God help them live spiritually and sanctify them."

- St. Paisios the Athonite
