For all of our mothers
« on: May 05, 2009, 10:57:53 PM »
As Mother's Day will be upon us this Sunday, let us beseech our Lord that he grant all our mothers not only many years, but also mercy and grant them their requests for salvation and life everlasting.

Lord have mercy!

Lord, have mercy.
"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"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

And for the Mothers who (like mine) have departed this life until we meet again on that Last and Glorious Day, may their memories be eternal and may they be granted rest from their labours and sacrifices.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord have mercy! Blessings to all the wonderful mothers in our midst, our own physical and spiritual mothers, and those mothers who have gone on before us! Thanks to them all for their sacrificial love and goodness.
