Pray for Metropolitan Basil
« on: February 04, 2010, 03:35:13 PM »
Please pray for the restoration of good health to His Eminence, Metropolitan Basil, the Byzantine Catholic Eparch of Pittsburgh as he is recovering from major surgery. He and Metropolitan Nicholas of Amissos have worked tirelessly over the years to lessen the pain that that festered among the faithful of each's flock arising from the bitter divisions that occurred in the twentieth century, which fractured many families and communities in the northeast United States. Lord have mercy, Eis polla eti Despota!

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

Blessed are the peacemakers.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy.
"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"
