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..."

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

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.

"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.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov
