Spiritual instructions

This list may seem overwhelming. Just calm down and relax! Memorise this “We cannot do everything at once, but we can do something at once” and live by it. Make reading a regular habit. You don’t need to read everything all at one go. Be patient! Orthodox education is a life-long process!
