My niece
« on: July 15, 2009, 07:37:25 AM »
May I ask for a quick prayer for my niece Olesya. She lives in Luts'k, Western Ukraine, and just turned 24. About a week ago, my wife and I learned that Olesya is 2 months pregnant. Neither she nor her mother and grandmother are sure that the father of the child (a much older man) will live with her, but she wants to keep the baby.

Lord, have mercy!
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.

"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.
