Matthew The Poor, Orthodox Prayer Life, pp.42-54

Welcome to my new blog!
All the previous posts published on blogspot have been migrated here.
This webpage has the advantage to give you access to some of my rocks at the same time, well, when I’m done with migrating my pictures…
For now, you have information about my Next Exhibit.

This is not the greatest wordpress template, but this is the only one having a dropdown menu, and I just wanted a free dropdown menu…

And now fromOrthodox prayer Life:

“We can distinguish the 3 degress [of prayer]
by the words of the Lord Jesus:
‘Ask, and it will be given you,’ which is vocal prayer;
‘Seek and you will find,’ which is meditation;
‘Knock and it will be opened to you,’which is contemplation…

Man cannot be nourished by the word of the Gospel
without reiterating it in his heart and mind…

‘Be diligent in meditating on the Holy Scriptures
and the lives of the saints,
for constant reflection upon them
fosters thoughts of fervor,
makes prayer easy,
makes tribulation endurable.’
St Isaac the Syrian, The Four Books, 3.75

‘Hush your tongue
that your heart may speak –
this is meditation,
and hush your heart
that the Spirit may speak –
this is contemplation.’
St John of Dalyatha, Homily on the Gifts of the Spirit.
