Lay offs
« on: March 25, 2010, 02:08:39 PM »
The hospital I work for has been talking vaguely about examining some positions to see if they are strictly necessary and my manager stopped by today to tell us that several jobs are being eliminated today, tomorrow, and Monday throughout the system, including in my department.  Please pray for those who are being laid off and for those fortunate enough to stay another day.

Lord, have mercy.
Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so. -- Douglas Adams

Dear Lord, help those seeking employment, and others to retain there's.

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

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

May God grant to each that which is conducive towards their eternal salvation...even being laid off.

Courteous is my name,
and I have always aimed to live up to it.
Grace is also my name,
but when things go wrong
its Courteous whom I blame;
but its Grace who sees me through it.

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 through the prayers of St. Xenia of St. Petersburg!
"If you leave me free in my religion, I will be very eager to carry out your commands. But if you try to force me to change my faith, I will first surrender my head. I was born a Christian and a Christian I shall die."

Lord have mercy on those who are losing their jobs.  Lord, provide for their needs.  Blessed St. Nicholas and Blessed St. Xenia, pray for them.
