"Love vigils. Vigils are a great thing. Heaven opens. We speak with God. In our vigils up there***, until midnight, I got a little tired and I would close my eyes. Afterwards, my nous with open, and I experienced prayer until morning. When it would finish, I had such a disposition that I was ready to begin again from the beginning."
-St. Porphyrios of Kavsokalyvia
***Note: St. Porphyrios is referring here to vigils in their small hut on Mount Athos.
