Souls in heaven rejoicing at the sight of the damned?
#13
  • There was a conversation between Fr. Silouan and a certain hermit, who declared with evident satisfaction: “God will punish all atheists! They will burn in everlasting fire.”

    Obviously upset, Fr. Silouan said: “Tell me, supposing you went to paradise, and there looked down and saw somebody burning in hell-fire – would you feel happy?”

    “It can’t be helped. It would be their own fault,” said the hermit.

    Fr. Silouan answered him with a sorrowful countenance: “Love could not bear that,” he said, “We must pray for all.”
