Give thanks to God!

August 4, 2010

The late Athonite Father Tychon used to say: The prayer, “Lord Jesus have mercy on us” is worth one hundred drachmas, but “Glory to God” is word one thousand.  Glorifying God is more valuable than anything else, because in the first instance, people often say the Jesus Prayer when needing something; but when one glorifies God in the midst of suffering, it is an ascesis.”
