God is infinitely great and pure, the praying man is aware of his weaknesses, insignificance , is almost annihilated yet of this he is yearning for His Creator’s marvellous , blessed presence !
Blessed Living Sun , even if it is scorching , blinding as well , through experiencing its existence, being our hearts are filled with inexpressible, overflowing joy . For me these quiet , prayerful moments gave the necessary strength for the priestly, monastic life , and these special moments help me even today to get through all the difficulties of life !
Let’s not be afraid of the quiet moments of prayer , lets dare to turn our faces , our hearts towards heaven , open it wide before the God of love !
