All is conquerable-Let nothing discourage you! – different

Agios Nektarios: Everything is conquered – Let nothing discourage you!

Saint Nektarios: All things are conquered remember this

Saint Nektarios: It is important to recognize the purpose of our life. It is reasonable to wonder why we came to this world. We must be careful not to deprive ourselves of our future life for the sake of the present. We should not neglect our great purpose, in honor of biotic care and concern.

Fasting, vigil and prayer alone do not bring the desired fruits. These are not the purpose of our life, they are the means to achieve the purpose. With virtues you must adorn your lamps.

Strive to banish the passions of the soul. Cleanse your heart of all impurities and keep it pure, so that the Lord may come and dwell in you, so that the Holy Spirit may flood you with the divine gifts. My dear children, let all your occupation and care be in them. Let these be your unstoppable purpose and desire. Therefore pray to God. Ask the Lord daily, but inside your heart and not outside it. And when you find Him, stand with fear and trembling, like Cherubim and Seraphim, for your heart has become the throne of God. But to find the Lord, humble yourself to the ground, for the Lord abhors the proud, but loves and visits the humble in heart.

The wise words of Saint Nektarios, about life and our purpose

If you fight the good fight, God will strengthen you. In the struggle we identify our weaknesses, shortcomings and defects. It is the mirror of our spiritual state. He who has not struggled has not known himself. Pay attention to even the smallest misdemeanors. If through carelessness some sin happens to you, do not despair, but get up quickly and approach God, who has the power to restore you. Within us we have weaknesses and passions and defects deeply rooted, many of them are also hereditary. All this is not cut off with a sudden movement nor with eagerness and heavy sorrow, but with patience and perseverance, with diligence, with care and attention. Excessive sadness hides within it pride. That is why it is harmful and dangerous, and is often provoked by the devil, to stop the fighter’s progress.

The road to perfection is long and requires prudence and patience. Be patient with your falls. Pray to God to strengthen you. After quickly rising, run and do not stand, like children, crying and lamenting inconsolably. Watch and pray, that you may not enter into temptation. Do not despair if you keep falling back into old sins. Many of them are strong by nature and by habit. Over time, however, and with diligence, they are defeated. Let nothing discourage you.
