Prayers for Conflict Resolution
« on: January 11, 2010, 03:11:59 PM »
Please pray for me.  I have had a very ugly conflict and argument with a fellow seminarian here at St. Vlad's, and I am doing all I can to reconcile with him, but to no avail.  It is a very difficult situation to deal with.

In Christ,

Dn. Michael
"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us..."

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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

"Lord have mercy."

"If it is possible, as much as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all men." [Romans 12:18]

All you can do is humble yourself, express your desire to be reconciled, and let this person know that you are always open and willing to discuss things in order to achieve mutual peace. Then leave it in God's hands and try to be at peace yourself.

Selam
"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."

Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
