His daughter ran away from home today. Please pray for her safe return and repentance, as well as healing for their relationship.

Lord, have mercy on Fr. James!

Lord, have mercy...and bring her home safely.
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.

Lord, have mercy!  O Lord, please bring this young lady home, safely.  Lord, work in the hearts of all those involved to bring about peace, harmony, repentance, forgiveness -- whatever is necessary for each one.  Blessed Theotokos, protect this young lady.  Amen.

Father bless!

She is back home, and to the best of my knowledge things are better. She was at church yesterday, and in good spirits. I am not going to pry into Father's family's business, but it seems to me that things are better now. Thank you all for the prayers. Fr. James is a wonderful priest, and he is well loved by all at our parish. It has brought all of us great joy to see that situation get better.

Great News...Glory to God....

Children of Priests and Pastors seem to be bad ....
Fr. Miroslav's Daughter wouldn't listen ,the popadija [prespetera]
Matushka] priests wife didn't do a good job disciplining her, neither did he,
so she got pregnant by a Mexican....
 
Metropolitan Christopher was so upset he threw them out of the Monastery St.Sava,
God Only Knows Where their at now....

Even where I live at, across the street there a baptist Minister with several daughters ,there always out on the street curb waving at the cars attracting every boy intown with boomboxes, some even have children ... ;D

Yes, many of the children of clergy I've had contact with were unruly. However, one shining exception is the son of my former pastor in the Baptist church. He and I are friends, and not only is this guy a pious Christian, but he is a convert to Orthodoxy! He is an acolyte at my parish, and wants to attend seminary with a view to the Priesthood once he is eligible (he has only been Orthodox for 2 years).
