"God Grant Them Many Years"
« on: October 01, 2010, 04:36:18 AM »
"Lord our God, with Glory and Honor, Crown Them."

60 years ago today (10/1/10),  my beloved parents, the Servants of God Panagioti and Ekaterini (Peter and Kathy), were united through the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, celebrated by the Rev. Archimandrite Chrysogonos Lavriotis at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, Cleve., Oh.  I am the first born of their 3 children (two sons and a daughter), who are greatfull to Our Lord for them and all they have given us.

Please mention them in prayer today.
"...Strengthen the Orthodox Community..."

Many Years!, Hronia polla!
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Congratulations!  Many Years!
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.

God grant them many years! :)
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.
