“Prayer is the light of the soul,
giving us true knowledge of God.
It is a link mediating between God and man.
By prayer the soul is borne up to heaven
and in a marvellous way embraces the Lord.
This meeting is like that of an infant
crying on its mother’s breast
and seeking the best of milk.
The soul longs for its own needs
and what it receives,
is better than anything
to be seen in the world.”

prayer is the light of the soul - st john chrysostom 23 may 2020

“You can set up an altar to God

Father & Doctor of the Church
