In this video recording, Fr. Arsenie says that God wants us to be people of the Cross, heroes, because there are no beggars in the Kingdom of Heaven…
And therefore, in order to explain this, he tells us the story of a monk who prayed to our Lord while he was fighting the devil…

A monk, the poor, you know… while he was pushing the door shut, the devil was also pushing it against… and the devil was stronger…
He said: “Lord Jesus, Lord Jesus!” But the devil was pushing it harder and prevailed…
As soon as he saw himself beaten, shouted: “Looooord Jesus!” and Jesus appeared.
The monk said, “Lord, I have called you…”
But Jesus said to him, “I came only when you called me for real…”

My dear, beware at any cost to be stuck in a mediocrity, that is, in a way to call yourself a Christian only by the fact that you do this or that.

 

God doesn’t help you… because in what God has put in man there is solely heroism… and there are no beggars in the Kingdom of Heaven…

 

You know, it was ingrained that God is merciful… there is no question about that, we have no words to show how merciful He is and how much He loves us…

but He wants us to be people of the Cross!
