Don’t Waste Time! / ?? ??????? ?????!

The following short excerpt from the works of Fr. John Krestiankin is directly related to the title of our Journal, “Redeeming the Time.”

Don’t Waste Time!

Friends, let us wash, let us cleanse ourselves by tears and the confession of our sins while there is time. Let us struggle in our life to acquire the Holy Spirit, Who will open to us the gates of the heavenly mansions. And let us use all of our earthly possessions to obtain heavenly treasures, by giving alms from a merciful and loving heart. Let us use our earthly life to come to know God, to come to know ourselves, and to prepare our eternal inheritance. Let us not waste time.
