“The horror of man’s predicament lies in the derangement that has afflicted his mind. It seems to him that he is doing everything himself, that he is acting completely independently, but in reality he is doing only the will of his lord, the devil.” — Archbishop Averky, The Struggle for Virtue
Today’s reading on Christian freedom is taken from:
The Struggle for Virtue: Asceticism in a Modern Secular Society
by Archbishop Averky (Taushev)
