A friend and fellow GOC priest in our Metropolis had a sick granddaughter (infant, born with brain tumors).  Little Evangeline died today, a little less than a year old, thankfully she was baptized.  Please pray for her and for her parents who are both very young (this was their first child), and for the grandparents.

In Christ,

Fr Anastasios

Give rest eternal, O Lord, in blessed repose, to the soul of Thy departed handmaiden, the baby Evangeline, and make her memory eternal.  Cry

Lord have mercy on her grieving parents, grandparents and friends.

Lord, have mercy on the poor parents! And Memory Eternal to the poor child...

I don't know... will this other world ever come, or are all these poor Evangelines in vain, a mistake, or - as secular humanists say - a reminder to us that we, rather than believeing in gods and other worlds, should just learn more about genes, tumors, diseases...

Yes, please, please, dear scientists, learn more about these things. Please learn more about less invasive treatments, please, please. If I would be younger and smarter, I would devote my life to this.

"Let me tell you of the so-called 'good things' of this life. Listen to them: sorrows and pleasures, angers and fears, hopes and desires. What is the evil then that has happened to your child who died early in life and was spared from these many and so powerful tyrants?" -St. Gregory of Nyssa

I cite these difficult words because I think that lives like hers are quite the opposite of being in vain, while many of us (myself included) know the reality we live in yet continue to sin.

I could discuss my views on how the secular world views this all but it wouldn't be appropriate in the prayer forum. I'd be happy to share my thoughts with you if you'd like to engage, but if you were just speaking "out loud" that's understandable and fine too. It's a difficult topic for any of us to fully grasp let alone accept.

Unfortunately, I am already 51.5 and not that full of energy either... but I am sure that if my totally atheist daughter's son or daughter will become a medical scientist, he/she will learn more about all that, and help prevent the cases of the future Evangelines from happening.

Father, you are right, and I am sorry for distracting this forum from its task. Yes, I am praying, too.

Memory Eternal to the Baby Evangeline.

Lord have mercy and grant strength to her parents, grandparents and all who loved her.

I am sure she will be missed.  I am also sure her life was not in vain.  She must have brought much joy to her parents, even if sorrow followed.
No birth, or life, is ever in vain.

Lord have mercy!
