Loneliness isolates you, makes you helpless, and prevents your spirit to enjoy the good things of this world, especially those of the spiritual world, while life in community saves you from many difficult situations. Nobody achieves salvation on their own, not even the monks, or priests or good Christians. All of us achieve salvation in community, in the bosom of Christ’s Church and we all are responsible of the others.
When your children will say “Holy God” they will hear the chants of the angels, who were once seen by a child in Constantinople in the time of the patriarch Proclus. When they will read “It is truly right to bless you, o, Theotokos”, they will find themselves in a poor cell on Mount Athos, where the prayer was first said by the Angel Gabriel; and when they will read the Evening Prayers, children will remember about the great John Chrysostom.
