Take some time on this day to just sit quietly, ponder on the words of God and His saints - reflect on the wonders of this life and all of creation.

Take a few moments to reflect upon the words of the saints.

What is grace?  It is the blessed power of God given to he man who believes and who was baptized in the name of the Holy Trinity.  It is the power that cleanses, sanctifies, enlightens, that helps in doing good and withdraws from evil, that comforts and gives courage in misfortunes, sorrows and sickness.  It is the pledge of receiving the everlasting blessings prepared by God in heaven for His Chosen ones.

~St. John of Kronstadt

The soul that loves God has its rest in God and in God alone. In all the paths that men walk in the world, they do not attain peace until they draw nigh to hope in God.

~St. Isaac the Syrian

God loves us more than a father, mother, friend, or any else could love, and even more than we are able to love ourselves

~St. John Chrysostom

Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
