Peteris Vasks: The Fruit of Silence

The fruit of silence is prayer
The fruit of prayer is faith
The fruit of faith is love
The fruit of love is service
The fruit of service is peace.

The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom,
and his tongue speaks what is just.

and his feet do not falter.

I have anointed him with my holy oil.
Alleluia.

I really need to remember to do this.

“Our life is love, and peace, and tenderness; and bearing one with another, and forgiving one another, and not laying accusations one against another; but praying one for another, and helping one another up with a tender hand.”
Isaac Penington, 1667

Mykola Dyletsky: Tsariu Nebesnyi (Heavenly King)

O Heavenly King,
the Comforter,
the Spirit of truth,
Who art everywhere
and fillest all things;
Treasury of blessings,
and Giver of life,
come and abide in us,
and cleanse us
from every impurity,
and save our souls,
O gracious Lord.
