For a few newlyweds
« on: June 29, 2009, 07:06:00 AM »
I had the blessing to attend two weddings (one as family, one as the sponsor) over the weekend.  Please entreat the Lord's protection, guidance, love, and mercy on Alexander and Katherine, and on Nicholas and Kelly, that each couple may enjoy all the blessings of the Lord, both in this life and in His Heavenly Kingdom.
"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.

Congratulations and Many Years to Alexander and Katherine, and to Nicholas and Kelly!
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.
