Grandfather has had a stroke
« on: September 26, 2008, 03:41:55 PM »
I have just learned that my grandfather has had a stroke.  I am flying out to California to be with my grandmother.  They have been like parents to me. 

Please remember this sinner and his grandparents in your prayers.

Lord have mercy!
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
