Today rwprof posted that his cancer has been diagnosed as terminal.  Please remember rwprof and his family in your prayers.  Please place him on your church's prayer list.

Lord, have mercy, through the prayers of St. Nektarios, of all the Unmercenary healers, and all your Saints!
"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"

Mark's condition has worsened considerably in the past two weeks. He is extremely weak and has eaten very little in the past few days. A friend and his priest remained with him throughout the night yesterday and, from the remarks posted at his blog by friends and family, it seems likely that the time of both an end and a new beginning may be very close.

Lord, hold your servant, Mark, close to You, preserve him from pain, forgive him all the sins that he has committed by word or deed or omission, and make him ready to meet You.
"Not only is it unnecessary to adopt the customs of the Latin Rite to manifest one's Catholicism, it is an offense against the unity of the Church."

- Melkite Archbishop Joseph (Tawil), of blessed memory

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
