For The Handmaiden of God, Argyri.
« on: April 29, 2009, 01:24:05 AM »
I just got off the phone to our fellow poster Prodromos (John). He is unable to get to the internet as his Grandmother, Argyri, is in hospital in a coma and is approaching the end. John has been living with his Grandmother during his studies and is very close to her. He asks us all to pray for her.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God have mercy on your Handmaiden, Argyri.

Everyone thank you so much, and thank you very much theo for posting this. I just came back from the hospital, my grandmother has been moved to palliative care to be put in the most comfortable position possible. Pray for my mother who is obviously taking it the hardest and is staying with her overnight.

Lord have mercy on my beautiful grandmother Agyro

The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

I just got off the phone to John.
The Handmaiden of God, Argyro, departed this world half an hour ago.

O God of all spirits and of every flesh, Who did trampled down death and overcome the devil, bestowing life on this Your world, to the soul of this Your servant Argyro, departed this life, do You Yourself, O Lord, give rest in a place of fight, in a place of green pasture, in a place of refreshment, from where pain and sorrow and mourning have fled away. Every sin by her committed in thought, word, or deed, do You as our Good and Loving God forgive; seeing that there is no man who shall live and sin not, for You alone are without sin. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your Law is truth; for You are the Resurrection, the Life, and the Repose of Your servant Argyro, departed this life, O Christ our God; and to You do we send up glory, with Your Eternal Father and Your All-Holy, Good and Life-creating Spirit; both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

+Eternal be her memory.

Memory eternal!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
