Most noble and sublime was your life and death o Sovereigns, wise Nicholas and blest Alexandra we praise you, acclaiming your piety, meekness, faith, and humility, whereby ye attained to crowns of glory with Christ God, with your five renowned and godly children of blest fame. O Martyrs decked in purple, intercede for us!

Many Blessed Years to anybody who is celebrating with me!


I need the Lord



There is nothing on earth that I need, except that which is most essential. What do I need, what is most essential? I need the Lord, I need His grace, His kingdom within me. On earth, which is the place of my wanderings, my temporary being, there is nothing that is truly mine, everything belongs to God and is temporal, everything serves my needs temporarily.

- Excerpts from the Spiritual Diary of St. John of Kronstadt, “My Life in Christ”


I am currently staying at a convent for three weeks, so I won’t be on often :)

It’s truly a blessing to be here

Please pray for SPU <3

One of my good friends that goes there was down the street at her apartment when the shooting happened

Therefore be sure that every prayer that is not fulfilled is certainly harmful; but a prayer that is answered is beneficial. The Giver of gifts is just and good and will not leave your prayers unanswered, for in His goodness there is no malice and in His truth there is no envy.



Arise, O God, judge the earth; for you shall inherit all the nations!

O Lord, send Thy grace to my help, that I may glorify Thy holy name… O Lord my God, even though I have done nothing good in Thy sight, yet grant me by Thy grace to make a good beginning. O Lord, sprinkle into my heart the dew of Thy grace. O Lord of Heaven and Earth, remember me Thy sinful servant, shameful and unclean, in Thy Kingdom. Amen

St. John Chrysostom, from evening prayers
