A cathedral of words compiled in this book... answers to so many tears... tears and answers sitting around the tiny table of holy confession, where the mercy of God glows like the sun in the dew drops. We, Father Arsenie and other priests, offer these glows taken from tears as lessons for future times and generations, that people may no longer grope blindly either in the night of ignorance or without direction, whence come all the evils that torment mankind, darken the ages and makes earth bleed too many times. There is only one clear path: living the Christian teaching deeply and wholeheartedly. This remains the only safe path, the path we must learn over and over again, with each generation. With fatherly love to all persistent readers, and with the utmost humility towards all Christians,

Father Arsenie
