Prayers for Father Ambrose on His Birthday
« on: January 02, 2011, 09:22:19 AM »
May God grant Father Ambrose many more years in His service.

Bless, Father. Happy birthday, old (  :laugh: ) friend

Many years! Father.
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

Happy Birthday!  Many Years, Father!
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.

Many years Father Ambrose!
