“Do not be vexed with those who show pride, or malice, effeminacy, and impatience in their intercourse with you or others, but, remembering that you yourself are subject to the same and greater sins and passions, pray for them and be meek with them….Bear ye one another’s burdens [if anybody has offended you, and it is hard for you, bear this], and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
– St. John of Kronstadt, My Life in Christ
