seek God’s Grace
God’s Grace has chosen for its action the Churches of God and the divine services. So you too go to Church and patiently and attentively, and reverently attend the celebration of the divine services. The appearance of the Church – together with its interior structure and decoration, the ritual structure of the divine services, and the chanting with the readings – all of these can act to produce their effect on you. So it is no wonder, that having entered into the Church empty and frivolous, you will leave it with a spirit of salvation.
Saint Theophan The Recluse
