THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK BEGINNING ADVENT SUNDAY 28st NOVEMBER 2021

“To pray is to ask becoming things of God.”

St John of Damascus (St John Damascene), theologian (c. 676-749) in his Patrologia Graeca 94:1089.

The Church remembers him in its prayers on Saturday 4th December, the anniversary of his death, along with Nicholas Ferrar, Deacon, Founder of the Little Gidding Community, 1592-1637.
