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

Each of us is attacked and led astray by the passions; but if he is at peace with God and with his neighbour he overcomes them all. These passions are the 'world' which St. John the Theologian told us to hate (cf. I Jn. 2:15), meaning that we are to hate, not God's creatures, but worldly desires.

- St. Peter of Damaskos , from Twenty-Four Discourses no. 21, The Philokalia Vol.3 edited by Palmer, Sherrard and Ware; Faber and Faber pg. 260
