“Prayer, by reason of its nature, is the converse and union of man with God, and by reasons of its actions,
upholds the world,and brings about reconciliation with God.”

~St. John Climacus, "The Ladder of Divine Ascent"

WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK FOR YOUR PRAYERS TOO: PRAY FOR UKRAINE.

Is there a stronger statement for the power of prayer than, "upholds the world?"  Some will accuse St. John of gross exaggeration but not the monk. 
Prayer brings joy to the monk's heart, peace to his soul, humbles him and makes him yearn for God.  We take our role in intercessory prayer very seriously
and welcome your petitions, large and small.  Please use either our Guestbook below or the more private form on the Contact page, and we will offer your
intentions during our Noon and Vespers offices where, given our numbers, Christ is always in our midst.

Thank you and may God bless you.  Glory to Jesus Christ!

    WOW! Five years ago this evening, I attended my first Divine Liturgy at Saint Anne Ukrainian Catholic Church, Warrington, PA! (Where has the time gone?) I give thinks for the numerous people (Clergy and laity), (past, present, and hopefully future!) that continually contribute to my Spiritual journey. First and foremost, I give thanks to Almighty God for His Presence in my life!

    Dear MoMT, Thank you so much for your prayers. In small, quiet ways, the Lord has heard and answered my prayers - not all of them, but He knows best. I offer up my a Rosaries for all of you and ask you to pray for Molly and Jack, both strong Christians who are faced with liver cancer. May God bless each and every one of you. +Peace in Christ, Damian Freeze

    Please pray for a young mom with 4 children (different fathers) who is on welfare. She thinks she may be pregnant with her current live-in boyfriend's child. She is considering abortion but the boyfriend is opposed to it. They were going to go to Planned Parenthood for a pregnancy test but we're trying to steer them in the direction of a local crisis pregnancy center. Thank you!
