St. John of Kronstadt: When praying with people, we sometimes . . .


“When praying with people, we sometimes have to pierce through with our prayer as if it were the hardest wall—human souls, hardened and petrified by earthly passions—to penetrate the Egyptian darkness, the darkness of passions and worldly attachments.

The simpler the people one prays with the easier it is.”

This is why it is sometimes difficult to pray.

— St John of Kronstadt
