Bucharest-Romania: Patriarch Daniel of Romania has declared 2022 as the Solemn Year of prayer and also as the Commemorative Year of the Hesychast Saints Symeon the New Theologian, Gregory Palamas and Paisius (Velichkovsky) of Neamt, reports Basilica News Agency. The declaration was made after the celebration of the New Years Liturgy on the 1st of Jan 2022.

“Without prayer there is no Church and no Christian life. When we lose the joy and peace of mind, it is a sure sign that we are not praying properly and as much as we should. The Orthodox Christian must pray as much as possible because prayer brings much holy love into the heart; it unites us with God the Merciful; it helps us to see in every man a brother and in every beauty of creation a gift from God. Prayer helps us to face the hardships of life and to taste the light and joy of the resurrection and eternal life in this world” stated Patriarch Daniel on the occasion.
