Saint Simeon the New Theologian on Prayer as a Pretext

St. Simeon the New Theologian

Visit the sick, console the distressed, and do not make your longing for prayer a pretext for turning away from anyone who asks for your help, for love is greater than prayer.

* This excerpt is from “The Philokalia: Volume Four” translated by G.E.H Palmer, Philip Sherrard, and Met. Kallistos Ware
