Weekly contemplation.

Consider, how the Lord in His divine wisdom, gave us the means of calling upon His name, and by descending into our own hearts through this ineffable glory, we also ascend, into the Kingdom of Heaven. Consider, how the invocation and utterance of the name of the Lord Jesus, crushes the heads of the infants of spiritual Babylon against the rocks, and gnashes their teeth.

Consider, the sheer humility of the prayer, and how only through being abased are we exalted by it. Consider, how many holy ones have retreated into the desert to taste this prayer more sweetly, and have died to the world and become as angels by this unceasing prayer. Consider, heavily, the Lord Jesus, Who spoke thus: “Abide in Me, and I in you.”

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me.
