Lighter than a feather

8 December 2020

The prayer of the Church has such great power that even were we to be less capable of speech than rocks are, it could make our tongue lighter than a feather. Just as a breeze makes a boat speed faster than an arrow when it fills its sails, so the prayer of the Church, when it falls from the tongue of those saying it, makes the words  stronger than the breeze.

Saint John Chrysostom
