for those times you just need some quiet time to sit, read just a short bit and reflect
Any Desire, no matter how good it appears, cannot rival the desire for Christ or for the Panagia. When I give my heart to God, will not God give me His entire Self in return? God seeks man's heart: My son, give me your heart (Proverbs 23:26). If man gives God his heart, God will grant him his heart's desires - as long as they will not be harmful to him. Only a heart given to Christ is not wasted, and only in Christ does one find - in abundance- the gift of divine love in this life, and heavenly exaltation in the next life.
~ Elder Paisios the Athonite
The soul that has come to know God fully no longer desires anything else, nor does it attach itself to anything on the earth; and if you put before it a kingdom, it would not desire it, for the love of God gives such sweetness and joy to the soul that even the life of a king can no longer give it any sweetness.
~ St. Silouan the Athonite
Jesus Christ, Son of God, Have Mercy on Me, a Sinner.
