The Repose of my Step-Grandmother, Monica
« on: March 11, 2009, 11:17:09 PM »
I would like to ask your prayers. My step-grandmother, Monica, who was always like a grandmother to me, died today. She is non-Orthodox, but ask for prayers for her and for all of us that will be driving long distances to attend her funeral on Monday. Thank you in advance.

May the Lord Grant Eternal Rest to his Servant Monica and strengthen and comfort her family during these difficult times.

May the Lord Bless and Sanctify those traveling from long distances to attend Monica's funeral.

Amen!

Yes Father, sign-up at https://www.rebtel.com/en/Utility-Pages/Join-flow/Join/?uid=0104970961 and you can call abroad on your mobile phone for the price of a local call. This means for me I can call China daily for less that $0.02 a minute. India, I believe is a little more expensive at $0.04 per minute. They give you your first call for free so that you can try it out. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to call abroad from the convenience of  their mobile phone!
