Quote of the Day

O Lord and Master of my life, a
spirit of idleness, despondency, ambition,
and idle talking give me not.

But rather a spirit of chastity,
humble-mindedness, patience and love
bestow upon me, Thy servant.

Yea, O Lord King, grant me to see
my own failings and not condemn my brother,
for blessed art thou unto the ages of
ages. Amen
