The Last Exhortation of a Poustinik to her Friends, Everywhere

Beloved of God,
Suddenly, we are in the throes of winter:
It has been absolutely frigid -
a time to pray and be still
a time to be drawn into the heart of the Trinity.
How exquisite is God's magnificent silence!
How desperately we need it
to purify us of the rancours of the modern world -
so evil, so pagan and so seductive,
so confusing because good appears evil and evil, good -
How I pray for you
so you can deepen your love affair with God -
regardless of the pressures on all sides.
