The span of a raven

God didn’t send us to earth so that we could live comfortably but for us to prepare for the eternal life that awaits us.

Just think what a terrible tragedy it would be if our Maker and Creator couldn’t offer us anything better, more luminous and more protracted than this life on earth, which has the stench of decline and death and lasts less than the span of a raven!

“Saint Nicholas Velimirovich”
