Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico
« on: May 02, 2010, 12:40:03 AM »
It seems that this spill has wreaked havoc on the Gulf of Mexico and the Louisiana coast and has been growing worse by the day.  Let's pray that this disaster is contained soon so that the damage to the local ecosystem can be kept to a minimum.

Lord, have mercy!

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

And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed. And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Our greed has killed us.  May God have Mercy upon our souls.  It will only get worse.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

I withdraw my prayer.  Sorry the scripture is so offensive.

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
