John of Kronstadt: ” the deceptive sweetness of sin separates us from the truly sweet life”

Dover Beach

St-John-of-Kronstadt.Contemporary-Icon.

“All our attention must be centered on the parable of the Prodigal Son. We all see ourselves in it as in a mirror. In a few words the Lord, the knower of hearts, has shown in the person of one man how the deceptive sweetness of sin separates us from the truly sweet life according to God. He knows how the burden of sin on the soul and body, experienced by us, impels us by the action of divine grace to return, and how it actually does turn many again to God, to a virtuous life.”

– St. John of Kronstadt
