For a friend
« on: July 22, 2010, 06:31:39 PM »
Please pray for my dear friend Xenia, who is struggling with some difficult family and personal problems. She's one the most cheerful, assiduous and full-fledged (as for being around my age) people I know and it's hard to see her suffering.

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

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
