First Hour Prayer

O Christ the True Light, which enlightens and sanctifies every one coming in to the world, let the light of Your countenance be signed on us, that in it we may see the unapproachable Light: and guide our steps to the doing of Your commandments, through the prayers of Your most pure Mother and all Your saints.  Amen.

Daily Readings

"When you pray, try to let the prayer reach your heart; in other words, it is necessary that your heart should feel what you are talking about in your prayer, that it should wish for the blessing for which you are asking.... Observe, during prayer, whether your heart is in accord with that which you are saying." - St. John of Kronstadt

Sayings From The Church Fathers

Humility is the gateway to dispassion, said St. John Klimakos; and, according to St. Basil the Great, the fuel of humility is gentleness. It is this that gives man constancy, so that he is always the same whether circumstances and thoughts are pleasant or unpleasant. He is indifferent to both honour and dishonour, joyfully accepting things sweet and painful, and remaining unperturbed.

- St. Peter of Damaskos, from Twenty-Four Discourses No. 9, The Philokalia Vol. 3 edited by Palmer, Sherrard and Ware; Faber and Faber Pgs. 237-238
