Life of St. Mary of Egypt Printable

I'm up late finishing a coloring page to help the kids get through the long compline service tomorrow. Hopefully this will be a good resource for other times, too.

St. Peter Newsletter -- January 9, 2013

The Prayer of the Heart We all know about the Jesus Prayer: Lord Jesus Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner. What we forget sometimes is how powerful this prayer really is. It's a great to jump start prayer. There are times we know we should pray but we forget, or sometimes it is even hard to do. The Jesus Prayer helps us with that. It is kind of like exercise.
