Tears are a gift from God

Academician, Serbian writer and psychiatrist Vladeta Jerotic once at a talk:

…I’ve been to Mt. Athos many times. And so I see someone at a Greek monastery. He seemed sad, this elder. Since I was being led by Fr. Mitrophan I tell him to ask the elder why he is sad. The elder replied: “For two years now I haven’t been crying. God has abandoned me, tears are a gift from God.”
