Holy posture

O Lord, I love the habitation of thy house,
and the place where thy glory dwells. ~ Psalm 26:8
"When you are before the altar where Christ reposes,
you ought no longer to think that you are amongst
men; but believe that there are troops of angels
and archangels standing by you, and trembling
with respect before the sovereign Master of Heaven
and earth. Therefore, when you are in church,
be there in silence, fear, and veneration." 
Saint John Chrysostom
