Spiritual Quotes

"In prayer we discover what we already have. You start from where you are and you deepen what you already have, and you realize you are already there. We have everything but we don't know it and don't experience it. Everything has been given us in Christ. All we need is to experience what we already possess."

               - Thomas Merton

Antony presented the new Antimins to our congregration and spoke briefly about St. Raphael, whose relic is sewn into the Antimins.

There Must Have Been Something

June 14, 2015 - by Fr. Antony Hughes
This statement intrigues me: 'they immediately left the boat and their father, and followed him.' Does that make any sense?
