I love to hike through the woods and around water—the peacefulness and beauty drives home for me God’s greatness. While you may not enjoy hiking, St. John of Kronstadt says that nature should draw our minds to God:

Who is it that so wisely, delicately and beautifully arranges and transforms the ugly, the sightless, formless substance of the earth into flowers? Who gives them their wonderful forms? Creator, grant that we may salute in the flowers Thy wisdom, Thy goodness, Thine omnipotence.

"AFR provides a sense of prayerful balance to my day. Throughout the workday, AFR keeps my mind centered on Christ and the beautiful melodies of the Church. AFR is a subtle reminder to attempt to lead a more prayerful and holy life."
