“Glory be to You o Christ, Word of God and Wisdom and Power and God Almighty.

What can we give you, we who are predators of all that you have granted us?

You have given us everything and you do not ask  anything from us but to accept and receive the salvation that you have offered us.

And again you see and know our efforts with grace because you are indescribably good.

We thank You, who gave us our being and granted us well-being. For even when we lost and denied existence, You guided us back to it with Your indescribable condensation.”

St. John of Damascus
