It’s the queen

16 July 2022

All the Holy Fathers declare that the first place in the life of Christians belongs to prayer. You want to make something happen? Pray. You want to be saved? Pray. All prayers are good and holy, but the Jesus prayer is the queen of all. ‘Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me’. This short but all-powerful prayer started with the Holy Fathers and they became the luminaries of the Church. Say it as often as you can, each day and night, and it’ll teach you what you want, what you don’t know. Force yourself to say this prayer.
