Our real ‘job’

prayer_y

“This life has been given to us as a time of preparation for the eternal life that is our inheritance as God’s children. The transitory nature of this world will end when God’s kingdom is ushered in and we all stand before the Great Judgment Seat of God. Loss, pain and suffering in this world will have not been in vain if we embrace everything as an occasion for transformation of self. To stand in the presence of God for eternity requires that we be deified, and all of life’s suffering is meant to help prepare us for an eternity of communion with the Holy Trinity.”

Abbot Tryphon
