The madness of our faith

I recently read a prayer of father Tikhon, the Russian Athonite blessed elder... "Holy Calvary, divine Calvary, tell me how many thousands, millions of sinful people you purged and sent them and filled with them the sweet Paradise" ...
This is the madness of our faith. A continuous uphill, a laborious ascent, which nevertheless makes you just so joyful!  The presence of Jesus overturns everything! And while you saw only difficulties, now you can feel an unbelievable power and divine grace. And while you thought that the sufferings wore you down, then a sweet path of consolation opens widely in front of you....
This is our faith. A madness that sends you up high in the sky. A madness that purifies you in this delusive world and prepares you to meet Jesus and live with Him forever!
