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

We receive salvation by grace and as a divine gift of the Spirit. But to attain the full measure of virtue we need also to possess faith and love, and to struggle to exercise our free will with integrity.

- St. Makarios of Egypt, from Homily 1: Spiritual Perfection no. 1, The Philokalia Vol. 3 edited by Palmer, Sherrard and Ware; Faber and Faber pg. 285
