Quote/s of the Day – 9 June
“Forget not the Holy Spirit
at the moment of your enlightenment;
He is ready to mark your soul with His seal….
He will give you the heavenly and divine seal
which makes the devil tremble;
He will arm you for the fight;
He will give you strength.”
“Glory be to Him,
Who received from us,
that He might give to us;
that through that which is ours,
we might more abundantly receive
of that which is His!”
“Virtues are formed by PRAYER.
PRAYER preserves temperance.
PRAYER suppresses anger.
PRAYER prevents emotions of pride and envy.
PRAYER draws into the soul the Holy Spirit
and raises man to Heaven.”
“When you begin to read or listen
to the Holy Scriptures, pray to God thus:
“Lord Jesus Christ, open the ears and eyes
of my heart so that I may hear Your words
and understand them
and may fulfill Your will.”
Always pray to God like this,
that He might illumine your mind
and open to you the power of His words.
Many, having trusted in their own reason,
have turned away into deception.”
St Ephrem of Syria
