Spiritual Quotes

 

If our thoughts are kind, peaceful, and quiet, turned only to the good, then we also influence ourselves and radiate peace all around us - in our family, the whole country, everywhere. This is true not only here on earth, but in the cosmos as well. When we labor in the fields of the Lord, we create harmony. Divine harmony, peace, and quiet spread everywhere.

       ~ Elder Thaddeus of Vitnovica

The Prayer of the Vigilant Heart

December 30, 2018 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
King Herod is not only an historic figure he is also a metaphor for a mind out of control, in other words, an impure mind. From impure minds come impure thoughts and from impure thoughts come suffering. We call it in Christian lingo sin. It boils down to this. Sin is anything that causes suffering in others or in ourselves. In the case of Herod his impure, out-of-control mind led to the massacre of innocent children. Read more »

Tonight in the midst of holiday busy-ness, when the gifts are wrapped and the television is off, and the house is quiet , take some time to contemplate the mystery of the birth of the Son of God. Take a few deep breaths, let your mind take a rest from all its labors, and look deep into your heart. There you will find him knocking on the door. Tonight, why not open the door? Read more »
