The crown of every good endeavor and the highest of achievements is diligence in prayer. Through it, God is guiding us and lending a helping hand, we come to acquire the other virtues. It is in prayer that the saints experience communion in the hidden energy of God`s holiness and inner union with it, and their intellect itself is brought through unutterable love into the presence of the Lord. (Makarios of Egypt)
