New lecture of Archimandrite Vasileios of Iveron Monastery on Mount Athos, the author of “Hymn of Entry: Liturgy and Life in the Orthodox Church”.
In this video recording, Fr. Vasileios gives us a simple way to find our balance: we need to understand that we are “nothing” and we should not consider ourselves “important” persons.
Romanian translation was provided by Rev. Fr. Constantin Coman.

then the one will find his or her balance…
