The Middle Road

Evil is the sickness of the soul, for it deprives the soul of its own healthy nature, which is virtue. Virtues are in the middle between excess and laxness. It is the middle way that keeps us on the road to salvation. This is why we must not allow our thoughts to tilt either to excess or deprivation, for the middle way keeps the heart upright.

Love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon
