Value of Illness

“My child, listen to me if you like and don’t go anywhere. Be patient. I have received no benefit here from my works. Only sickness was of benefit to me. So stay in the Garden of Our Most Holy Lady and be a little patient with the pains. Then your soul will be greatly benefited.”
(Anonymous Elder speaking to his disciple in a vision quoted by Elder St. Paisios)

Sickness; Long-suffering; Patience
