  • O Holy St. Demetrius pray to God for us!
Let us pray for the souls of those who were killed in today's suicide bombing outside a Coptic Church in Egypt, for all those injured, and for their families.

For the Departed:
With the spirits of the righteous give rest, O Savior, to the souls of Thy departed servants and keep them in the blessed life with Thee, O Lover of man. In the place of Thy rest, O Lord, where all Thy Saints repose give rest also to the souls of Thy servants for Thou alone art the Lover of men.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit: Thou art the God Who descended to hell and loosed the chains of the captives. Give rest, O Lord, to the souls of Thy servants.

Now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen: O only pure and immaculate Virgin, who without seed didst bear God, pray to Him that their souls may be saved.

For the injured:
Heavenly Father, physician of our souls and bodies, Who have sent Your only-begotten Son and our Lord Jesus Christ to heal every sickness and infirmity, visit and heal also Your servants from all physical and spiritual ailments through the grace of Your Christ. Grant them patience in this sickness, strength of body and spirit, and recovery of health. Lord, You have taught us through Your word to pray for each other that we may be healed. I pray, heal Your servants, whose names only you know Lord, and grant to them the gift of complete health. For You are the source of healing and to You I give glory, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Amen.

With the spirits of the righteous made perfect in faith,

give rest, O Lord, to the souls of your servants.

Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

The Crown of Martyrdom has never been far from us, and more than likely will continue to be blessed upon those true martyrs, not who take their own lives in the name of God, but who are innocently taken for the love of God. In my house there is a picture on the wall, Rastafari sit upon His throne , we Orthodox in Ethiopia also found and find persecution and the sword of martyrdom, but God remains true, and out Mother the Church survived the onslaughts, as it has in times past, and we know God will keep the doors of our churches open long into the future, until that Day.  Is there honestly a more appropriate place to risk one's life then when standing in Divine Presence of Jesus Christ on the altar at the Divine Liturgy? Let us pray for the peace and consolation of the hearts and souls of those suffering.



"Others have labored before you, and you are entering into their toil."  Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

Pray for the peace of the One Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church.


+ God Bless Their Souls +

stay blessed,

To those who have fallen asleep in Christ: May their memories be eternal.

To those who are injured: O Lord Jesus Christ, grant them health and salvation.

"How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?"

May The Lord forgive me the anger I feel right now.

Vengeance is mine, I will repay, saith the Lord.
 
To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.

-

May they rest in peace, brothers and martyrs for Christ.

May the Lord's terrible retribution be swift upon His enemies, and may these servants of Satan find conversion as they face divine Justice.
