St. Leonid of Optina: Beware of passionate attachments to the world. . . .

St. Leonid of Optina“Beware of passionate attachments to the world. Although they deceive you with peace and comfort, they are so fleeting that you do not notice how you are deprived of them, and in their place come sorrow, longing, despondency, and no comfort whatsoever.”
