Prayers for God's help
« on: October 25, 2010, 04:03:46 PM »
. . . and my return to the catechumenate (please God).

I have been struggling a lot these last few years, and wish to finally find some peace about my faith instead of hanging on to traditionalist Anglican and Roman baggage.



St Valdamarr, pray unto God for me!

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
