Thoughts for the Week
Wisdom from the Fathers

... In psalmody and prayer do not bind yourself, but do as much as the Lord gives you. Do not abandon reading and interior prayer either. Some of one and some of the other and so you will spend the day pleasing God. Our perfect fathers did not have a fixed rule, but during the course of the whole day they carried out their rule.

†St. Barsanuphius the Great

The whole earth is a living icon of the face of God. …I do not worship matter. I worship the Creator of matter who became matter for my sake, who willed to take His abode in matter, who worked out my salvation through matter. Never will I cease honoring the matter which wrought my salvation! I honor it, but not as God. Because of this I salute all remaining matter with reverence, because God has filled it with His grace and power. Through it my salvation has come to me.

†St. John of Damascus

If you feel sweetness or compunction at some word of your prayer, dwell on it; for then our guardian angel is praying with us.

†St. John Climacus
The Ladder of Divine Ascent
