Pray for me. I have fallen into gross sins during this most solemn week of our Lord's Passion.

Be encouraged my friend! Do not despair. Rejoice that your sins cause you to be ashamed, for that shows that the Holy Spirit is active within your heart. Do not listen to satan when he tells you that you are not a Christian, that your fasting has been in vain, that your spiritual struggles are now negated. Cling to the Cross and arise with Christ. It is not our constant falling that determines our spiritual success, but rather our perseverance in arising again and again by the grace and mercy of God.

I am right there with you my brother!

"Lord have mercy."

No. It comes from the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. I found it here today: http://www.ninesaintsethiopianorthodoxmonastery.org/index.html

It is quite beautiful. :)

Lord, have mercy!

I've been on a roller-coaster ride this week, as well. 

My normally peaceful life unraveled and tension has permeated the last few days causing strife and arguments.

Please, pray for me, as well!

Lord, have mercy on us all, and make us worthy to greet the Resurrected Christ in a matter of days!

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.

I am very disappointed in myself, too. For the whole period of the Great Lent, I failed to control myself in more ways than one. I have done some things that I should have not done, including posting some unnecessary, un-charitable remarks on this forum...

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

PS: Confess at the first opportunity and take communion as soon as it is feasible. The longer you delay, the more successful will be Satan and his minions. Bottom line: do not decide on your own that you are unworthy; all are unworthy yet we go to the Lord anyway, as He asks us to do, as the Holy Spirit within us helps us do, and as the Holy Church wants, hopes and prays that we do.

The tempter is subtle and strong, but "greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world."  Remember, dear one, that God is merciful and He remembers that we are dust.  Confess and trust in His unfailing mercy.  Satan would have you despair.  God would have you repent and commune with Him and know the victory that is Pascha.  Lord, have mercy on your servant.  Blessed Theotokos, present the prayers of the servant of God to our God and Thy Son.
