"To search the sacred Scripture is very good and most profitable for the soul.  For, 'like a tree which is planted near the running waters,' so does the soul watered by sacred Scripture also grow hearty and bear fruit in due season."

-John of Damascus, "Orthodox Faith" (4.17)

By helping us to read holy writings with ancient eyes, the church fathers help us drink deeply from the only water that can give us true life.  

This guide to prayer and reflection combines excerpts from the writings of the church fathers as found in the Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture with a simple structure for daily reading and prayer.

There are fifty-two weeks of readings following the weekly lectionary cycle A.  You can read through them in order or by thematic interest.  Each day you will also find a simple opening and closing prayer drawn from the prayers and hymns of the ancient church.

Come and find the deep nourishment God offers. ______________________________

Tell others about Jesus like these memorable ancient Christians did:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of a Pastor, Foreign Missionary, Prominent Evangelist, or Christian Writer, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). ______________________________
