For the OCA and Metropolitan Jonah
« on: February 28, 2011, 05:53:25 PM »
I noticed people here start threads concerning a Church heirarch, with criticisms of him or of his church.

I must personally say, recently, I find it much more fulfilling to pray for your patriarch and for the Church because no matter even if you feel in disagreement, you still must look to him like your own father.  Therefore, I think it's necessary that people shouldn't criticize, but pray for His Holiness Metropolitan Jonah and for the OCA.

And for all Orthodox patriarchs and bishops.

Lord, have mercy!

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

May the protection of the Mother of God, and the prayers of St. Nektarios, be with Metropolitan Jonah and the entire Orthodox Church in America.
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.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

yaa Rabbu-rHam!
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

"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"
