Русский перевод священника Алексея Паранюк.
It is impossible to imagine a meaningful Christian life without a daily prayer rule. But what should this prayer rule be? How long or short, and consisting of which prayers? How can we prevent our daily prayer rule from becoming purely a formality? What should we pay particular attention to, and what mistakes should we avoid? And what is the most important thing in a prayer rule?
Meeting of Archpriest Andrew Lemeshonok with the House of Love of Labour Staff
We should never forget the awful attacks that happened 15 years ago. We pray our gracious God that He grants rest eternal to all of His servants that lost their life on that day. But we should not hold anger or hatred against anyone. These are not Christian feelings, they blind our spiritual senses and lead us away from God. We have to find strength to forgive and pray to our Lord that He give us this strength.
