Please pray that in this crucial time of my brother's life, God lead him away from temptation and shower Him with Mercy and Love that will compel him to love Him and His Church and to follow the narrow way. Pray that He also assisst me in my severely failing attempt to rectify the gulf that separates us, and to heal the enmity that he has towards me. I hope God may grant us at least some progress this Great Lent.

Lord, have mercy.

Psalm 132 (LXX)
Behold now,
what is so good or so joyous
as for brethren to dwell together in unity?
It is like the oil of myrrh upon the head,
which runneth down upon the beard,
upon the beard of Aaron,
which runneth down to the fringe of his raiment.
It is like the dew of Aermon,
which cometh down upon the mountains of Sion.
For there the Lord commanded the blessing: "life for evermore!"

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, have mercy on me, the sinner...
Allow us who pray this  prayer, Oh Lord, to intercede for those who ask it of us as You will, oh God:
Lord, have mercy; Lord, have mercy; Lord, have mercy.
Most Holy Trinity, have mercy upon us...

May the Lord enlighten and guide your brother, and bridge what separates you.


An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Lord have mercy.  Never let go loving your brother no matter what.

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

Lord have mercy on you and your brother.

Temptation, going astray and conflict between brothers happens in the best of families.  If your brother was raised as well as you, he'll come around.  I'll pray for you both.

My dear brother in Christ,

I pray that God will touch your brother's heart and soften it to turn to Him. I pray that the blessed gift of reconciliation will be made possible, for this is pleasing to God, and all things are indeed possible with Him!
