Be patient, forgive each other;
Gird yourselves with love for God and your brother;
Let God’s peace prevail in you
For you are called to it, it’s true.
Be grateful, teach and perfect in wisdom each day,
Whether at work or at play.
Let your faith and love be seen in acts;
Let your words be based on the truth and your judgement – on facts.

God put you in your current position –
Within it, be ready for unexpected things
And act boldly without waiting for a permission;
Pray each day to enjoy the fruits that wisdom brings.
Iaroslav Sunday 10.02.2019
Prayer is a strong thing.
For our body we need water and food, for our soul – prayer and good deed.
Prayer plus fasting equals a wing and a wing
Which carry us up, closer to God, indeed.
Stock up with prayer if you intend to lead
Your family, workers or a people as a king;
Start with a prayer to succeed.
Let prayer heal an offence, a wound and a sting.
Let prayer help you in every need.
God hears you whenever you pray.
When your soul is hungry, you have food to feed.
Let prayer help every day and in every good deed.

Today the Great Joy came;
Therefore, let no one be sad:
Wise and silly, fit and lame,
Rich and poor, single and Dad.
The Peace has come;
Let no one be thinking of rage;
Let all be armed with love at least with some;
Let us sing, let us be sage.
This Day the King of unity
Has joined forces with us,
Therefore, our focus is the community;
Let us rejoice, seek peace and share the Christmas spirit thus.

Some people are eager to earn,
But it does them an ill turn.
I wish they could see
The real fruits of the real tree…
Gold gives power, they think;
They forgot it can bend to its will in a wink.
It’s impossible to serve mammon and to be happy,
It’s impossible to decay and to be snappy.
I don’t say go poor,
Just let your soul be pure.
Love will make your days sunny,
Life is not all money.
Iaroslav Monday – Tuesday 19-20.12.2005
Be gentle in all your ways:
In studies, work, with a dog;
During good and bad days;
At home, with buddies, when it’s sunny, when there is fog.
If you don’t, you will regret,
You’ll wish you’d been gentle indeed,
You and your neighbour will be upset.
If you miss the mark, repent in word and deed.
Iaroslav Tuesday 18.09.2018
Just for today,
I will be happy truly;
I will live a worry-free day;
I will fulfill my duties duly.
I will not overwork,
But I will do just right;
I will pray before I use my fork,
And I will focus on light.
