GLORY TO JESUS CHRIST! GLORY FOREVER!
Dear Spiritual Children,
During the Great Fast we are called to increase our ‘prayer’ life. The following is some spiritual wisdom given to us from St. John Chrysostom in regards to prayer:
‘Why is it necessary to pray at home, and to attend divine service at church? Well, why is it necessary for you to eat and drink, to take exercise, or to work, every day? In order to support the life of the body and strengthen it. So also it is absolutely necessary to pray in order to support the life of the soul, to strengthen the soul, which is sick with sin, and to cleanse it, just as you employ some kinds of food and drink to cleanse the body. If you do not pray, you behave in advisedly and most unwisely, strengthening your body in every way, but neglecting your soul. The best moments on earth are those in which we meditate upon heavenly things, or when we recognize and defend the truth. Only then do we truly live. It is therefore vital to the soul that we should more often rise above the earth, and mount to heaven, where alone is our true life.
Our heart dies spiritually every day. Only ardent, tearful prayer can restore it to breath and life. If we do not pray fervently every day we may easily and speedily be overtaken by spiritual death.’
May these words from St. John inspire us to continue the Fast with joy...keeping our eyes on Christ’s Resurrection from the dead and the Kingdom of God which is to come.
With Love In Christ,
