For My Mothers Memory
« on: March 26, 2004, 01:40:53 PM »
Dear Brethern,

Tomorrow marks 1 year that my beloved mother, Helen, fell asleep in the Lord. Please remember her in your prayers if possible.

With much love and thanks,

james

Memory Eternal.  That first anniversary is very difficult.  Is her grave anywhere near where you live so that you could visit her?  I found that this was very helpful.

Memory eternal!
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
