Св. Василій Великий про молитву Вечірні: „Коли день закінчиться, треба подякувати Богові за все те, що Він нам дав, і за те, що доброго ми вчинили. А й провини слід визнати, бо – чи ми свідомо, чи несвідомо провинилися ділом, словом або самою лише гадкою – за все нам треба переблагати Бога на молитві” (ШП. 37, 4).
