Orthodox Thought for the Day

Read the Fathers

We do not need great knowledge to be devout.  If we concentrate and meditate on the few things we know, our heart will be spiritually embroidered.  One may be profoundly affected by a single hymn, while another may feel nothing --- even though he may know all the hymns by heart, as he has not entered into the spiritual reality.  Therefore, read the Fathers --- even one or two lines a day.  They are very strengthening vitamins for the soul.
