“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 . “Let us then overcome the world. Let us run toward eternity. Let us follow the King. Let us prepare the memorial of victory. Let us despise the worldly pleasures. We do not need much effort to achieve this. Let us turn to heaven so that we may conquer the world! When you do not desire the world, you overcome it. When you deride it you vanquish it. We are strangers and passengers. Let us not grieve for any sad thing related to the world.” Saint John Chrysostom
