Senator Edward Kennedy, 77, dies


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy, a major figure in the Democratic Party who took the helm of one of America's most fabled political families after two older brothers were assassinated, died late on Tuesday, CNN said. He was 77.



Memory Eternal, Lord have mercy on the soul of Thy servant Edward
Troparion - Tone 1:
O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!

May the memory of the servant of God, Edward, be eternal!


Just as a proactive note:  Even though this news regards a well-known American politician, please remember that this is the Public Forum and that political discussion is not permitted here, especially here in the Prayer Forum.  Please use this thread only as a vehicle to offer up your prayers, and reserve any commentary on Senator Kennedy's politics or the political aftermath of his death for the private Politics board.  Thank you.

May the earth covering the servant of God Theodore be light and may the Lord comfort and strengthen Victoria, Theodore's children and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

May the Lord grant Theodore eternal rest in a place of comfort and a place of verdure where sorrow does not exist.

Amen!

Lord, have mercy on his soul.
Memory Eternal.
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.

Cossack 316, the Prayer Forum is not the place for veiling your judgment of anyone in the words of a prayer.  Any more "prayers" like this from you in the Prayer Forum will be cause for disciplinary action against you.

I didn't want to interupt the spirit of this topic of prayer, so I've waited until after the burial.

This is the second prominent secular death that I became aware of via "OrthodoxChristianity.net", within a week's time, the first being Robert Novak.  "OC.net, where you hear it first!"
