Things that don’t match our priorities usually pass us unnoticed. We could hardly accept them even if we wanted to, because they are simply off our radar. Here, at the Convent, we like to say: "This is Father Andrey's blessing". In most cases, I have no idea what these "blessings" are. In reality, people come to me with ready strategies, looking as if they know exactly what to do and eager to do it. There is nothing left for me to say but "Go ahead". Hardly does anyone ever come to me and say: 'What should I do? How do I live my life now?"
