Wisdom of the Church Fathers and the Monastic Life

Panayia Appearing to St. RomanosPanayia Appearing to St. Romanos The wicked one, on the watch, carried me off as booty as I lazily slept.
He led my mind into error; he plundered my spirit and snatched away.
The wealth of Thy grace, this arch robber.
So raise me up, as I am fallen, and summon me, Saviour,
Thou who dost will that all men be saved. — A Prayer
