Blessed Triodion to all!
« on: February 07, 2009, 06:03:29 PM »
With the coming of sunset (which has already come for most of the world), we've passed into the Triodion period.  A blessed preparation for the Great Fast and the Great Feast for all!  May it be free from temptation (Purple Demons), malice, and all other sin; but instead full of grace, peace (God's peace, the "peace from above" "that passes all understanding"), charity, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and Love (yes, I know I already said charity...).
"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

Lord, have mercy!
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Lord have mercy and walk with us.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
