I recall thinking about a year ago while I was at some service in the Finland's Valamo monastery and listening some prayer for stylites and all the other kinds of ascetics that this prayer must be a little out-dated since there aren't any that kind of ascetics anymore. Apparently it seems that I was wrong.
A Christian must not be fanatical; he must have love for and be sensitive towards all people. Those who inconsiderately toss out comments, even if they are true, can cause harm.
