My Friend, Eric
« on: April 30, 2009, 01:34:58 PM »
Please keep in your prayers my friend Eric.  He is about to finish his post-secondary studies and is having a quarter-life crisis if you will.  He entered his field of study since it would provide good employment, but he has no interest in entering that field now after 4 years.  He is becoming very resentful of his parents (who applied significant pressure on him), increasingly depressed and is unsure of what to do now.  He has always had a deep love for music, and it is one of the few things he feels like he has going for him at the moment.

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 fill his soul with the sweet music of Your Wisdom!
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
