Don’t stop

13 February 2022

Constantly say ‘Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me’ with your tongue and your mind. When the tongue tires, start with the mind. Then, when the mind becomes burdened, the tongue. Just don’t stop. When you’re at prayer keep control of your mind and don’t think about anything else. Pay attention only to the words of the prayer.

Saint Iosif the Hesychast
