For All the Departed
« on: February 10, 2007, 12:38:58 PM »
Today is the first of two Saturdays of Souls (the other is the Saturday before Pentecost).

We remember those righteous who have fallen asleep before us in the hope of Life Eternal: Kings, Patriarchs, Bishops, Priests, Deacons, Monks, Forefathers, Parents, Siblings, Children, Strangers, the Poor, those oppressed, killed in war, terror, conditions of distress, and for all those who were Perfected in the Faith.

May their memory be eternal!
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

I didn't know that!

May He have mercy, indeed!

Tomorrow is the first of Saturday of Souls for this year 2013.

May their memory be eternal!

Give rest, O Christ, among the Saints to the souls of Your servants, where there is no pain, no sorrow, no grieving, but life everlasting.
Grant me to see my own errors and not to judge my brother

Amen!

Memory Eternal!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Memory Eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
