I really like the podcast of Fr Seraphim (on iTunes). It always gives me something to think about. Here I wanted to mention something that Fr Seraphim said that he heard from someone else (I cannot recall the name). It was a simple observation about what we should expect when we make ourselves like Christ. Christ’s life is the answering to this. The world will not like it and it will not go well. I take it to mean that there is a certain way of things not going well that is actually a sign that one is on the right track, and in this sense things are going very well indeed.
