Letter to a Spiritual Daughter Listen to me, dear sister. Do not trouble your soul over the fact that you are weak and that you do not correct yourself. Of course, it may be that you have not corrected yourself in a big way, but I trust that you have in small things which you do not even see, and they can add up. They seem to be small and insignificant, and yet thy can be not only significant for your salvation, but even sufficient. Let me list at least some for you with which you are familiar and which you indeed possess on occasion: If at some time you show someone a kindness, you will be shown mercy. If you co-suffer with someone who is suffering (insignificant as this may seem), you are numbered with the martyrs. If you forgive someone who offends you, not only will your sins be forgiven because of this, but you will also become a daughter of the Heavenly Father. If you pray from your heart for your salvation, even just a little, you will be saved. If you reproach, accuse and condemn yourself before God for the sins perceived by your conscience, you will be justified just for this. If you confess your sins before God, even for this you will receive forgiveness and a reward. If you grieve over your sins, or feel compunction, or shed tears, or sigh even your sigh will not be hidden from Him, for Saint Symeon says, “not even one tear, nor a fraction of a teardrop, escapes His notice” (Prayers before Holy Communion). And Saint John Chrysostom says, “If you just lament over your sins, He will accept even this as cause for your salvation.” See how much you have corrected without even knowing it! And it is well for you that it is this way, so that you will rather glory in your infirmities and not complacently gaze upon what you have corrected. Let the righteous Bestower of rewards appraise the latter. As for us, let us behold only our sins, repenting of them daily and taking care that they may be forgiven. - Elder Moses of Optina -
