Quote of the Day

“Man needs to enclose himself in the inner closet of his heart more often than he needs to go to church: and collecting all his thoughts there, he must place his mind before God, praying to Him in secret with all the warmth of spirit and with living faith. At the same time he must also learn to turn his thoughts to God in such a manner as to be able to grow into a perfect man.”
-St. Dimitri of Rostov
The Art of Prayer: An Orthodox Anthology
[London: Faber and Faber, 1966 -page 46]
