Weekly Quote 3-1-17

O Lord and Master of my life, a spirit of idleness, curiosity, ambition, and idle talk give me not. But a spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love, bestow upon me Thy servant. Yea, O Lord King, grant me to see mine own failings and not to condemn my brother; for blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.
— Saint Ephraim the Syrian
