For eternal memory...
« on: April 16, 2009, 06:42:32 AM »
... of my great-grandmother, Paraskevi, who passed away last week (in the hurry of getting to her funeral I didn't get a chance to post this).  She was close to 100 (born in late 1910), daughter of a priest, faithful until the end to the Lord, and loving of her son (my papou).
"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

May the souls of the faith, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I meant to say, may the souls of the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

May she rest in Peace.

Memory Eternal
Troparion - Tone 1:
O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!
