For Prayer.....

I have no hope but in Your great mercy. Grant what You command and command what You will.

(St Augustine of Hippo)


For Reflection.....

The Christian life is a perpetual springtime
(St Clement of Alexandria)



Ignatius was one against many, as St Peter had been before him; and was put to death as the apostle had been: but he handed on the Truth in his day. God forbid we should not in our turn hand it on; glorifying Him by our lives, and in all our works, witnessing to Christ's passion, death and resurrection.

(J.H. Newman, Parochial and Plain Sermons)

"The Orthodox temples represent heaven and earth joined in glorious union. The sanctuary divided from the rest by the screen is heaven with its holiness and mystery; it is always there yet inaccessible to sinful man so long as he remains in isolation; therefore the doors leading into the sanctuary are closed except during the service. They are open wide however when Christians are gathered together in obedience to Christ's commandment and in faith, love and fear, begin to celebrate the Eucharist. Then heaven illuminates the earth and God meets his creation."
(CE Padwick)

Do not lose your inward peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset. Commend all to God, and then lie still and be at rest in His bosom. Whatever happens, abide steadfast in a determination to cling simply to God, trusting to His eternal love for you; and if you find that you have wandered forth from this shelter, recall your heart quietly and simply."
(Francis De Sales)
