OCA Proceedings
« on: October 17, 2007, 09:39:54 AM »
I know the proceedings started yesterday--our Abp +DMITRI called for a special day of fasting and prayer--but they go on through tomorrow, iirc, so join w/me, if you would:

O Lord Jesus Christ, kindle the hearts of all thy priests and bishops with the fire of zealous love for thee, that they may ever seek thy glory.  Give them strength that they may labor unceasingly in thine earthly vineyard for the salvation of our souls and the glory of thine all-honorable and majestic Name: of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages.  Amen.
Priest in the Orthodox Church in America - ordained on March 18, 2012

Amen.  Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
