Forgiveness
« on: February 22, 2004, 02:31:38 PM »
Dear posters,

Since today is Forgiveness Sunday I ask forgiveness from all of you posters for my many shortcomings.  The way we run the board is not always good, fair, just, equitable, nice, attentive, or neat.  But certainly none of that is due to malice.  For my failings please forgive me.

Brethren

I ask your pardon and forgiveness for the times I have offended or hurt  you, in word or deed committed in knowledge or in ignorance.

Please pray for me a sinner.

please forgive me also, for I know that I have hurt people in my posts here (Jennifer comes to mind....).  Without forgiveness, there is no Christianity.  Please forgive me!

In all humility, I ask for everyone's forgiveness for my glib tongue and quick temper.  A blessed Lent to you all.  I'm taking a break from posting during the Fast, but can always be reached via PM.

You have never offended me yet I forgive you anyway!  Same goes with the rest of the OC.net participants.  Please accept my apologies for anything I may have done to offend you or any other members of OC.net.  It was surely unintentional on my part, yet I am still sorry.

I'm going East for Great Lent this year as I have posted previously.  I will also have to do my "western" duty this Lent due to family obligations especially for my children whose lenten activities are part of their Confirmation formation program.  It may turn out that there will be a conflict in schedule between my Eastern & Western selves.  Please pray that this conflict in schedule is minimal as I wish to adopt an Eastern spiritual mentality for the Great Fast.  I am particularly worried about possibly missing the rites of Great Holy Week and the occasional Presanctified liturgy on Friday evenings due to required attendance at my normal (RC) parish on behalf of my family.

May God bless you all with a very miserable Great Fast.  Please pray for me that I will experience great hunger and thirst physically and experience undeserved spiritual riches.

I ask you all to forgive me for any hurt I may have caused you, intentionally or not. As a moderator I have a greater responsibility to avoid being a cause of friction and I am aware that I have often failed in this regard.

Please forgive me.

As with John I ask for your forgiveness not only from the sins I have commited as a member and moderator, but also for sins of omission.  I pray that everyone has a fruitful lenten season, and I ask for the prayers of the membership.

Dear Friends,

I've been away due to technical difficulties at home, particularly in my basement, which has, due to the negligence of the town, become Noah's Ark.  

It is hard being an administrator, and much harder being a Christian.  If I have offended you through my unnecessary words and actions, or through my lack of necessary words and actions, or in anything, as an administrator or as a human being, please accept my plea for forgiveness, and pray for me, that I will be able to sincerely repent with God's help.  

With prayers for a fruitful Fast for all of you,

Philip

My Polish brother,

We all wrestle with controlling our tonques and zealous emotions, let us be slow to react, and give time to listen and discern the thought, sometimes the intent is veiled and brings misinterpertation.

We should respond with due respect  and charity, is this not all wanted by all ?

Pokoj,
