SAINTS OF THE DAY: The Holy Fathers of the 7th Ecumenical Council are commemorated on October 9. Today the Church remembers the 350 holy Fathers of the Seventh Ecumenical Council under the holy Patriarch Tarasius (February 25). The Synod of 787 (the second to meet in Nicea) refuted the Iconoclast heresy during the reign of Empress Irene and her son Constantine VI. The Council decreed that the veneration of icons was not idolatry, because the honor shown to them is not directed to the wood or paint, but passes to the prototype (the person depicted). It also upheld the possibility of depicting Christ, Who became man and took flesh at His Incarnation. God the Father, on the other hand, cannot be represented in His eternal nature, because “no man has seen God at any time” (John 1:18).

WHY is morning prayer important?1) Morning prayer is very important because you meet God before anyone else. 2) You encounter God before you encounter life’s troubles. 3) You have an encounter with God sooner than you do with the devil. 4) You get news from Heaven before you get news from earth. 5) You kneel before God so you don’t bow before people. 6) You honor God before you honor men. 7) You feed your Spirit before your body. 8)You pronounce the name of Jesus before any other names. 9) You look at Jesus Christ before you look in the mirror. 10) You put your heart in order before your home. Therefore, wake up with the name of the Lord Jesus Christ on your lips. Starting the morning with prayer is the secret to success to obtaining strength and grace from the Source of life for the whole day.
