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.
Glory to Jesus Christ!
Glory to Him forever!

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.

Domine miserere - O Lord, have mercy
There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

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.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

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.

Lord, have mercy.
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.

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!

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.
