Want to know what devotion to God is?
– Lack of fear of danger.

Monk Simeon of Mt. Athos

God let me stand when all seems against me. Let me stand when the world around me seems to crumble. When those I love have left me. When false accusations are brought forth. When I feel every last drop of my strength seeping into the ground. And my tears cover my face. Cover my humanity.

Please let me stand.
