For my wife & unborn child
« on: October 06, 2010, 09:42:07 PM »
The realization came to me tonight while catching up with some prayer threads that I haven't asked for prayers for my wife who is pregnant with baby #2!  7 1/2 months is a bit late, but obviously not too late - please pray for Presvytera Kassiani and our unborn child (and for little Eleni, who's not quite sure why mama can't pick her up as much anymore).
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

Congratulations!  Wishing everyone many, happy years!

May the baby and mother be healthy and the delivery easy!

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.

Father Bless,

Congratulations! More Life! :)

You may already know this, but it is good to pray the Prayer of Hannah and the Magnificate of Mary during pregnancy.

"Lord have mercy."
