I know some of you weren't the biggest fans of John Murtha and his politics, but I did want to make a thread about him, as he passed away yesterday (article).

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

Just a proactive reminder:  As usual, when praying for a politician, political commentary not related to prayer is to be posted only to the private Politics board.  Thank you.

May the memory of the servant of God, John, be eternal!  (I underwent the same surgical procedure that ultimately killed him.  Complications from gall bladder removal are known to be quite rare, however.)

Lord, have mercy on his soul.

Memory Eternal.

(I had gallbladder surgery, as well.  Glad I hadn't heard that people can die from it, before I had the surgery.)
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

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