O God, Thou art my helper; Thy mercy shall go before me.

Wisdom from the Holy Fathers
A respected monk from New Skete would say to me: "On every feast day of Pascha when we we say 'Christ is risen,' we commemorate the angel's proclamation in front of the empty tomb of Christ. Those who leave the church immediately after 'Christ is risen' is sung are not Christians. The ones who remain to celebrate the Divine Liturgy are the Christians."
On Discernment of Thought
