St. John of Kronstad: Never confuse the person formed in the image of God. . .

Icon of St. John of Kronstadt“Never confuse the person formed in the image of God, with the evil that is in him; because evil is but a chance misfortune, an illness, a devilish reverie. But the very essence of the person is the image of God, and this remains in him despite every disfigurement.”

+ St. John of Kronstadt, My Life in Christ
