St Heschios the Presbyter
Just as impossible as it is to fight battles Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica
without any weapons,
We are far too engrossed
or to swim in a great sea
in things of this temporary world,
while fully clothed,
and thus we become Spiritually Impoverished
or to live
because no one
without breathing,
can sit on two chairs at the same time.
so too, without Humility
and our constant Prayers to our Lord Jesus Christ,
it is impossible for us
to master the Art of Inward Spiritual Warfare,
or to set about it
and pursue it skilfully
and be victorious.
