All the time - when you drop off to sleep or wake up, when you eat or drink, or talk with someone -- keep your heart at work secretly, sometimes meditating on a verse from the Psalms, and sometimes praying, Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy upon me"’  Abba Philemon

Wednesday, October 23 - How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty!  My soul yearns, even faints for the courts of the Lord; my heart and flesh cry out for the living God.”  Psalm 84:1-2


The heart is a small vessel, but all things are contained in it; God is there, the angels are there, and there also is life and the Kingdom, the heavenly cities and the treasures of grace.”  St. Makarios of Egypt   


Thursday, October 24 - The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness"’  Jeremiah 31:3

It is not we who chose to awaken ourselves, but God Who chooses to awaken us”  Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation”


Saturday, October 26 -...but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance, character; and character, hope.  And hope does not put us to shame, because Gods love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”  Romans 5:3-5


The pursuit of the virtues through ones own efforts does not confer complete strength on the soul unless grace transforms them into an essential inner disposition.  For just as a living soul activates the bodys members, so the grace of the Holy Spirit activates the virtues.”  Gregory of Sinai,  The Philokalia; Volume 4


Responsive Psalm: Psalm 84:1-6  My heart and my flesh rejoice in the Living God

Inviting the bell to sound: Listen, listen, this wonderful sound calls us to the Jesus life in the heart
