The Exaltation of the Honourable and Life-Giving Cross

The Deposition of the Girdle of the Holy Mother of God at Constantinople

Thy mercy shall pursue me, O Lord, all the days of my life.
Verse: The Lord is my shepherd, and I shall not want; in a place of green pasture, there hath He made me to dwell.

Wisdom from the Holy Fathers
If we persistently devote ourselves to God and keep a careful watch on the soul's passible aspect, we are no longer driven headlong by the provocations of our thoughts. On the contrary, as we acquire a more exact understanding of their causes and cut them off, we become more discerning. In this way the following words come to apply to us: 'My eye also sees my enemies, and my ear shall hear the wicked that rise up against me' (Ps. 92:11. LXX).
On Love
