For Cristifer
« on: August 05, 2010, 09:05:26 PM »
Brothers and sisters,

Please pray for the repose of the soul of the servant of God CRISTIFER, who took his own life earlier today.  He was a long time acquaintance and leaves behind a large number of friends and family.  This all came very suddenly and without warning; we're still trying to figure out what happened.

Vicnaja pamjat!

These things are very difficult Schultz.  I've experienced similar things in my lifetime with close friends.  One as young as 16 years old.  They leave us in the wake of a very particular kind of sorrow.

My prayers for Chistifer and for you and those who love him.

Mary

May his memory be eternal, and may he be placed in a place of peace.

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.

Lord, have mercy.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
