Prayer is a help in our life, a conversation with God, an abandonment of earthly cares, an ascent into heaven. It’s the generic medication for all the passions and is able to protect us from them. It gives life, the promise of health and is a hope-bearing blossom. Prayer’s a great weapon, a great fastness, a great treasure, a great harbour, a safe haven.
Saint Nectarios of Pentapolis
Ο Θεός, ιλάσθητί μοι τώ αμαρτωλώ και ελέησόν με.
