12. VESPERS HYMNS – TONE 2 – 27AP- 22 DECEMBER 2019


Elder Thaddeus Vitovnic
Our Lord God does not need our Prayers.
We need our Prayers.
When we pray,
we actually communicate closely
with our Beloved Lord.
We have no relative here on Earth
who understands and Loves us
as much as our Heavenly Father does.
His Divine Love cannot be expressed in words.
For He Who is Love itself,
is far beyond our limited understanding.
Consequently, Divine Love is beyond all imagining
For we are far too small
to even begin to plumb Its depths!
