Saint Simeon – Quiet Place

On Turning to the Fathers, noted scholar Fr. John McGuckin discusses Saint Simeon. Listen to the words of Saint Simeon: “If you feel oppressed, go into a dimly lit and quiet place, lift both your hands up to heaven, make the sign of the cross over yourself; then lift up the eyes of your soul towards God. The oppression will leave you.”
