St. John Damascene, Doctor, on Prayer

Standard

mary19-damascene.1

Prescription of the Day.

“Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God.”

You probably heard that explanation but may not have known or remembered it comes from this great Doctor of the church.  As we look forward to the optional memorial of St. John Damascene on December 4,  consider the following:

  • How do you raise your heart and mind to God each day?
  • Are you requesting truly “good” things from God?  
  • What are “good thing”, anyway?
