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.
"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.

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
