Urgent prayer needed for seminarian and his family
« on: January 17, 2011, 01:25:04 AM »
My friends (and the Godparents of our daughter) have just found out minutes ago that they lost their daughter who was still in the womb (she was 33 weeks). Please pray for them. They lost the previous child by miscarriage as well, and not three weeks ago learned that their only son is autistic. They just moved to attend seminary months ago. They intimated to me that they were thinking of throwing in the towel when they learned of thief son's condition. Please pray for the family, and for the newly departed Evelyn.

Lord, have mercy! +

I can relate... my wife had miscarriages. It's very sad. May the Lord give your friends strength.

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.

May baby Evelyn's memory be eternal.
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
