Prayer

Great Panagia

The more the rain falls on the earth,
the softer it makes it;
similarly,
Christ’s holy name
gladdens the earth of our heart
the more we call upon it.

St. Hesychius the Priest

Learning to pray is an essential aspect of Christian life. It is also the work of a lifetime. On this page we offer some resources for prayer that will hopefully be added to with time.
