Amma Theodora, a Saying…

Strive to enter by the narrow gate. As trees cannot bear fruit if they do not undergo winter storms and rains, so for us this age is a winter. We will be not able to inherit the Kingdom of Heaven other than through many afflictions and temptations. 

Matthew 7:13: “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.” 
Luke 13:24: [And He said to them:] “strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.”
