For the Fallen
« on: November 09, 2008, 06:19:48 AM »
For those soldiers who both here and everywhere have served their country, may their Memory be Eternal.

May those who reposed to the Lord and now lie in unknown graves, never be forgotten.

Lest we forget.

Eternal be their memory.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Memory 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.

Memory Eternal to the fallen.

Lord, stop all wars and illumine our hearts so that we all know better than plan wars or approve war as means of politics.

I also have a special prayer for the fallen fighters of the underground guerilla Ukrainian Insurgent Army of the 1940-s and 50-s. They were the biggest guerilla movement in the history of humankind, and they bravely fought both the Nazi and the Soviet regime. Their mere memory was then desecrated, mocked, dragged through the mud by the KGB and the Soviet propaganda machine, which, through forgery and lies, portrayed them as sadistic Nazi collaborators. It's only now that the whole picture of who they really were emerges in the collective mentality of my Ukrainian people. Memory Eternal, and Glory to the Heroes.

Memory Eternal
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.

Memory eternal! Lord, have mercy! Dear Lord, grant the eternal comfort to Heroes!

Heorhij, is that prayer available on line?
