For my husband, my aunt, and myself
« on: January 12, 2009, 02:01:04 PM »
DH and I are going through a bankruptcy, and I was laid-off in October and am still hunting for a job.  Our car just died and we are hoping the "new" used car we are getting works out, since it will wipe out what little savings we have, but I cannot work without a car.

My only living aunt has been brought home to die.  She didn't understand that she is dying until the hospice nurse explained it to her.  She is not Orthodox but was my Godmother when I was baptized as a baby.

May the good Lord have mercy on Lily and her family.

May you find a good job, soon.

May the previously owned, new to you car, turn out to be a the most reliable automobile ever made!

May you find strength to help you aunt in her last days.

...you are in our prayers.

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

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.
