March 2014 Prayer Quote:

"You should continually and unceasingly call to mind all the blessings that God in His love has bestowed on you in the past, and still bestows for the salvation of your soul.

You must not let forgetfulness of evil or laziness make you grow unmindful of these great blessings and so pass the rest of your life uselessly and ungratefully.

...In this way the heart meditates constantly on the words from the Psalms

'What shall I give to the LORD for all His benefits toward me.' " (Psalm 116:12).

 -Mark the Ascetic

"The end of every monk and the perfection of his heart direct him to constant and uninterrupted perseverance in prayer; and as much as human frailty allows, it strives after an unchanging and constant tranquility of mind and perpetual purity."
