St. Luke of Simferopol: "Great is the embrace of our Lord Jesus Christ..."

St. Luke Archbishop of Simferopol of Crimea (source)
Great is the embrace of our Lord Jesus Christ. It is so great that we cannot comprehend it. The Lord has in His embrace all those who suffer in their life from trials and worries. What depth does His heart have, and how great is His love, such that He grants rest to all those who labor and are heavy-laden, and grants them consolation, and the strength to endure trials and to not loose hope when they are wronged in their life!
-St. Luke of Simferopol
Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
