lamps of our heart
If we wish to stay on the path that leads us to God’s presence, let us, like good pilgrims, prepare wisely.
The psalmist gave his whole soul, his whole heart, his whole being to God; he endured countless dangers, suffered many deprivations, for the sake of the only truly worthy cause: to enter into immediate relation with God; to commune with God Himself and to be filled with Him.
How I would like to see this kind of love, this kind of faith, in our own pilgrimage to God.
+Elder Aemilianos of Simonopetra
