Glory to God! my mother may start going to Church!
« on: March 19, 2011, 11:22:10 AM »
my mother's co-workers keep speaking about this Church they go too, how inspired they are by the sermons.  my mother wants to give this Church a visit.  It's one of those Joel Olsteen-type Churches, but at least it's something!  Glory to God!

we could use your prayers.

Lord have mercy!

Regardless off the church, it may open the door for you and your mother to discuss your faith freely.  :D

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

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
