For Marko
« on: June 17, 2009, 11:26:02 PM »
I was on a late train last night and I saw a man (about 40) on one of the seats in a depressed state. I decided to go and talk to him and the man opened his heart to me, he told me how his father had just passed away and he was not dealing with it well. He told me parts of his life story from his Italian origin where he was born on a Gondola, to how he was nearly about to marry, and a bit about his father. He lives almost on the poverty line so I was trying to help him as best as I could .Today I saw him again on the train quite randomly (on a different line) and he was happy to see a familiar face. I talked to him again and he is still struggling with accepting the passing of his father, the man had tears in his eyes constantly and this hurt me quite a lot. All I am asking is prayers for Marko's father that his memory may be eternal and Prays for Marko himself that he is able to be strengthened by this and become closer to the Lord.

Lord may Markos father's memory be eternal.

Saint Mark I ask for your prayers to the Lord for a man who has you as his patron Saint.
The sins I don't commit are largely due to the weakness of my limbs.

Lord have mercy!
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

Lord, have mercy!

Memory Eternal to Marko's father!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord bless and give guidance to your servant prodromas as he ministers to Markos.
