Time is Precious ( St. Cyril Patriarch of Jerusalem )

We live in this vain world and are truly ignorant; or rather we have not yet understood why we are alive, what value this life of ours has, and what purpose man has on earth! Unfortunately, we have
become almost like the irrational beasts. We live without considering that the time of our life here is the most precious thing for future restoration. We use up and waste this time with no regret. And when we come to our senses, we shall be unable to bring this time back.
Therefore, how truly wise is the man who has realized the great value of time in this transient life and who takes advantage of it accordingly,
enriching his life with good works, so that when the grievous hour of death comes, his conscience will be confident and say in his defense before the spiritual prosecutors, the demons, “I have done what I should, so why are you still raging?”
