When mind and heart are united in prayer and the soul is wholly concentrated in a single desire for God, then the heart grows warm and the light of Christ begins to shine and fills the inward man with peace and joy. We should thank the Lord for everything and give ourselves up to His will; we should also offer Him all our thoughts and words, and strive to make everything serve only His good pleasure.
St. Seraphim of Sarov
Be sure to grab a copy of my graphic novel “Anastasis: the Harrowing of Hades”. If you’ve read it, leave a quick review on Amazon and tell your friends and parish about it! 🙂
