summer prayer

Glory to You, bringing from the depth of the earth an endless variety of colors, tastes and scents. Glory to You for the warmth and tenderness of the world of nature. Glory to You for the numberless creatures around us. Glory to You for the depths of Your wisdom, the whole world a living sign of it. Glory to You; on my knees, I kiss the traces of Your unseen hand. Glory to You, enlightening us with the clearness of eternal life. Glory to You for the hope of the unutterable, imperishable beauty of immortality. Glory to You, O God, from age to age '

 

-Fr. Gregory Petrov shortly before his death in a Soviet prison camp in 1940.
