Loneliness

Part of moving to a new city is loneliness.

I found this quote the other day during a non-lonely moment, and thought I'd pass it along here.

When you are praying alone, and your spirit is dejected, and you are wearied and oppressed by your loneliness, remember then, as always, that God the Trinity looks upon you with eyes brighter than the sun; also all the angels, your own Guardian Angel, and all the Saints of God. Truly they do; for they are all one in God, and where God is, there are they also. Where the sun is, thither also are directed all its rays. Try to understand what this means.

Elder Herman of Mt. Athos
