"An Athonite elder said: When you express your opinion to others, do it so that they can benefit from it. If you are going to chatter, do it only with God. No person can get tired when talking to Him, for praying is restful. Many times we pray for someone who is ill, and others are praying for him also, and despite this, the person dies, and those who have prayed for him wonder why God did not hear their prayers. They do not realise that God did hear them, but that He knew what would be best. We do not know what would have been the outcome of that person's life had he lived. We should praise God for everything."
An Athonite Gerontikon [032]
