Birthday Of Saint John - Poem by Liza Sud

Today it is your birthday.
I’m sorry – I’m not close
To what you want and show.
My way is sloth and slow.

My highest wish and clothes,
My trembling nerve, my gorgeous
And the best pure meeting,
The thirst never completed.

I wish your light repeated.
All devils – be submitted
To your meek voice and fleeted
All sorrows once again!

2 november - birthday of saint John of Kronstadt.

    MY WAY IS SLOTH AND SLOW I'm sure St. John would approve your humility in admitting this, but he might also say taking life slowly is the best way to live, so that you appreciate all your blessings. SLOTH is one of the traditional Seven Deadly Sins. But you don't strike as a person who is slothful with all of your writing and reading.
    Thirst is it thirst for materialistic things and money, or is it the mystic's thirst to be in God's presence?
