“And if we are spiritually worn out or the Prayer is going poorly, or if we have some unresolved and complex inner struggle, or a heavy sin weighing upon us, no matter what it is, when we turn to her, we will soon feel the relief and grace of her who is full of grace entering within us, and giving birth anew to your soul, setting us on the pathways of eternal joy…”
(Homily from the Hermitage of the Holy Cross, Feast of the Port Arthur Icon)
