St. Seraphim of Sarov on how God warms our hearts.
Most of us occasionally “get the blues”—this can particularly be the case during the holidays. St. Seraphim of Sarov helps us understand that during such times God can warm our hearts:
God is a fire that warms and kindles the heart and inward parts. Hence, if we feel in our hearts the cold which comes from the devil—for the devil is cold—let us call on the Lord. He will come to warm our hearts with perfect love, not only for Him but also for our neighbor, and the cold of him who hates the good will flee before the heat of His countenance.
"I am so blessed by Ancient Faith Radio. I could not get this teaching in any other way. The fact that I can listen to hours of these conversations in my car is truly astonishing and again a huge blessing. The time alone would prevent me from hearing the lectures; however, in my car, I am able to listen to these teachings, the Bible, etc. I am very blessed to be living in this age of podcasts. May God bless you and all those who bring these many words to us!"
