I know that I speak for many of us who are tired of being called out as a heretic - not directly, but surely by tone and inference by one not in the community of canonical Orthodoxy. Enough already. You have a right to believe as you wish but I suspect that the Saints and Elders whom you respect and reverence would not approve of haughtiness and the lack of introspective humility often displayed by certain posters. We are all imperfect and during the Fast, as we all approach the Great Day, the words of St. Ephraim the Syrian should be first and foremost on our tongues, our minds and our hearts - not the dusty words of the Synodikon, rightly reserved for use at best in full once a year.To obsess about it is to be like the Pharisee whose prayers were not pleasing to the Lord .
O Lord and Master of my life, take from me the spirit of sloth, despair, lust of power, and idle talk.
But give rather the spirit of chastity, humility, patience, and love to Thy servant.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see my own transgressions, and not to judge my brother, for blessed art Thou, unto ages of ages. Amen.[/color][/b]
