“Remembering the constant blessings of God, we must always and for everything glorify His holy name, and this gratitude to the Lord should be expressed in offering a prayer of thanksgiving to Him, a sincere, heartfelt and pure prayer. The Lord looks upon a grateful person with favor and love, fulfills his good requests and sends him new mercies.”
(Archimandrite Kirill Pavlov, Homily on 10 Lepers)
