"I Always Have a Small Icon of the Panagia Underneath My Pillow" (St. Porphyrios of Kavsokalyva)


I always have a small icon of the Panagia underneath my pillow. I take it out at night and kiss it with affection, and in the morning I kiss it again with even greater affection. And I entreat her to cover me, saying the hymn we all know: "I place all my hope in you, Mother of God, keep me under your covering."

- St. Porphyrios of Kavsokalyva
