Christ comes lots of times and knocks at your door.
You ask Him into the sitting-room of your soul and then get involved with other tasks and forget all about the great Visitor.
He waits for you to appear and when a long time’s passed He gets up and leaves.
Next time, you’re so busy, you answer Him from the window. You haven’t got time even to open the door to Him.
“Elder Amphilochios Makris of Patmos”
