“Come my Light, and illumine my darkness. Come, my Life, and revive me from death. Come, my Physician, and heal my wounds. Come Flame of divine love, and burn up the thorns of my sins, kindling my heart with the flame of Your love. Come, my King, sit upon the throne of my heart and reign there. For You alone are my King and my Lord.”

—Saint Demetrius of Rostov, “the Chrysostom of Russia” (+1709)
