Dear Parish Faithful,
Great Lent: The Twenty Fourth Day
From Evagrius of Pontus (+ 399)
Do not pray for your heart's desires,for they may not entirely harmonizewith God's purposes.Pray instead as you have been taught:"May your will be done in me."Pray to God this way about everything,that his will might be accomplished in you,for he only desires what is good and usefulfor your life,whereas you do not always request this.
