The lessons of life are fortified through those experiences which derive from pain and suffering; indeed, St. Paul and the Greek fathers considered them to be stepping stones to the ultimate victory of perfection.

Several decades ago an American monk, who himself has known considerable physical suffering, translated a small book by Archimandrite Seraphim Papakostas, entitled "For The Hours of Pain".

It contains a lesson that bears repeating: "If Christ had marched to glory, through sufferings, is it strange that we His followers must do the same? If the absolutely sinless and holy One, upon whom affliction and pain had no claim, passed through every measure of affliction and pain for our sake, is it strange that all those who are being sanctified through Him need to be cleansed and purified in the crucible?

Learn less then, dear Christian. If man had not sinned, if we weren't sinners we would certainly march to divine glory without afflictions and sufferings. Now, however, there is no other way to this glory, but through suffering and pain. The leader of our salvation Himself, marched on that road."
