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

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

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.
