Brothers and sisters, I lived in communist prisons [for his Christian faith], I lived in wilderness [as a hermit], but I did not benefit so deeply and real as I did in front of many deathbeds… screams, they were seeing themselves entering the unknown, they were not ready…
They just wanted to live one more day!
And we, those who waste years like a day, we say: “How much can one do in a day?”
I say, “not a day, but a moment, and it is very important!”
I repeat, God doesn’t need our words, but our hearts! [Proverbs 23:26]
