Friends,

People seem to be dropping around here like flies.

Please remember in your prayers the servant of God THOMAS who was admitted to the ICU due to serious oxygen deprivation.  He has fluid in his lungs which they unforunately cannot drain the normal way due to his obesity.  He's apparently been blacking out at work for the past month but never told anyone. 

Lord, have mercy!

"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"

Lord have mercy.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
