"During the dark ages of Orthodox Theology, our Church survived because of the richness of her liturgical life. If you understand our various liturgical services, you will understand the whole Theology of the Orthodox Church. While others talk about liturgical poverty and liturgical renewal, as Orthodox, we must concentrate our efforts on liturgical understanding." -- An Orthodox Hierarch

Beginning of Great Lent

O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust of power, and idle talk. But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love to Thy servant. Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own sins and not to judge my brother; for Thou art blessed unto ages of ages. Amen. (The Prayer of St. Ephraim the Syrian)
 

Great Lent: REMEMBER ME, O LORD, WHEN THOU COMEST INTO THY KINGDOM!

 

Wisdom

"Humble people have no needless or petty quarrels with others, because they have no egocentric desires to always have their own way. They are not self-seeking; for they know that it is God’s will, not their own, that they should strive for. Therefore, humility naturally brings with it unity, both with God and with our fellows." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH
