Safe Pregnancy
« on: June 11, 2010, 02:26:34 PM »
My wife is expecting our second child ( ;D ).  Please pray for her (Pres. Kassiani) and our unborn child - for health, happiness, and all of God's blessings!

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

Lord, have mercy!

Congratulations, Father!
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.

Father Bless,

Congratulations! :)

"Lord have mercy."

It is good to pray the Prayer of Hannah [I Samuel 2:1-10] and the Magnificat of Mary [St. Luke 1:47-55] during the time of pregnancy.

"Bad art may be forgiven; but to remain unmoved by beauty will not. Doubts may be forgiven; but a lack of wonder will not. Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."
