Be not separated from Christ, nor from the Church. Do you hear the priest ringing the bells? Get up immediately, get ready, and go to church, and listen to the service with attention. Similarly participate in the Divine Liturgy. And guide your children, as much as you are able, to avoid sin, to go to church so they will be blessed, that they may live and prosper.
St. Cosmas the Aetolian
