Please pray for Costa who is gravely ill with lung cancer
« on: December 05, 2010, 01:40:35 AM »
Costa, a Greek Orthodox elderly man in his 80s, is in the hospital with multiple tumors.

He has been a heavy smoker and has been suffering from cancer for at least two years now.

Please pray for his health and salvation.
His wife is very distraught.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

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.

Lord, have mercy.

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc, et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.

Well, it is truly indeed that cigarette smokers have a higher risk to have lung cancer. However, I will pray that he will survive from that ill and we’re hoping for his full recovery. I hope other smokers will stop or limit their self to smoking so that they could prevent that kind of ill.

All-Holy Trinity, have mercy on your servant, Costa. I ask that you free him of all ailments and give his family peace of mind and heart, that they may look toward You in their time of need. Lord have mercy!

Indeed, Lord have mercy...

Lord have mercy on your servant Costa,

On all of us, everywhere also; on Jerusalem this year!

Lord hear our prayers; Mary, pray for us; save us!

Lord have mercy; Father have mercy; Christ have mercy; Holy Spirit work within us!

†NI KA†
 
Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.

He was a Greek Orthodox Christian.

Thank you.
