Lorenzo Scupoli says that when we see sunsets or mountains we can

reflect that all this visible beauty is the work of the invisible and most beautiful creative Spirit, in Whom lies the cause of all external beauty. Then, filled with joy, say: ‘O rich streams flowing from an uncreated source! O life-giving rain drawn from the boundless sea of all blessings! How I rejoice in my innermost heart, when I think of the ineffable beauty of my Creator—the origin and cause of all created beauty! What spiritual sweetness fills me, when I hold in my mind to the thought of the beauty of my God, which no word can describe nor thought comprehend, and which is the principle of all beauty!’

"I want to thank with all my heart your station for broadcasting online the beautiful and holy music of the Orthodox Church. Finding your station by chance is such a blessing for me, because the prayers and the songs bring me peace and serenity in my mind and in my soul. I felt the need to express my gratitude for this blessing, and I want to kindly ask you to thank your team on my behalf for the joy, the relief, and the faith they bring me across the Ocean. I wish everyone who is associated with AFR for the glory of God every success for the future."
