The Sunset Hymn

Gladsome Light of the holy glory that shines from the immortal, heavenly Father, the holy, the blessed Jesus Christ! In that we have come to sunset, now that we see the evening light, we sing the praise of  Father and Son and Holy Spirit, one God! Worthy are You to be praised at all times with voices meet for holy song, O Son of God, the Giver of life, for which cause, all the world does give glory to You!

The Prayer At The Approach Of Sundown

Vouchsafe, O  Lord, to keep us this evening without sin.  Blessed are You, O Lord God of our Fathers, and praised and glorified is Your Name forever. Amen.   Let Your mercy be upon us, O Lord, even as we have set our hope on You.  Blessed are You, O Lord, teach us Your commandments.  Blessed are You, O Master, make us to understand Your commandments. Blessed are You O Holy One, enlighten us with Your commandments.  Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever, do not despise the works of Your hands.  To You belongs praise, to You belongs song, to You glory belongs:  To the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever and forever.  Amen.

May my prayer for the people here present be well-pleasing; Read more...

Daily Readings

"When you pray, try to let the prayer reach your heart; in other words, it is necessary that your heart should feel what you are talking about in your prayer, that it should wish for the blessing for which you are asking.... Observe, during prayer, whether your heart is in accord with that which you are saying." - St. John of Kronstadt

Sayings From The Church Fathers

The real and true life then is the Father, who through the Son in the Holy Spirit pours forth as from a fountain His heavenly gifts to all; and through His love to man, the blessing of life eternal are promised without fail to us men also. We must not disbelieve the possibility of this, but having an eye not to our own weakness but to His power, we must believe; for with God all things are possible.

- St. Cyril of Jerusalem , from Catechetical Lectures: Lecture 18 no. 29
