Our focus of Time

bridegroom-e1554807075708.jpgOne who is baptized cuts himself off from all earthly hopes and supports, and lives in this age as if in a desert, not tied to anything. His heart is not on the earth – it is totally in that age. All that is here touches him in passing, so that having a wife, he is as if he had none; buying, he as though possessing nothing. In general, he uses the world as though he did not use it.

During this Lenten season, reflect on Saint Theophan’s words and consider your Stewardship of Time to focus on the Heavenly and not the earthly. For everything on the earth is temporary and will pass away!
