The 17th Day: The Daily Effort

Dear Parish Faithful,

GREAT LENT - The Seventeenth Day

"For daily supplications before God in prayer and psalmody lightens
and transforms every attack, turns the fleshly
desires aside, diminishes the inclination towards
acquisitiveness, casts down arrogance, does away with envy,
moderates anger and causes the remembrance of wrongs to disappear."

- St. Gregory Palamas (+1359)
