I'm getting married
« on: April 25, 2011, 08:23:03 PM »
Prayers requested for myself and my bride to be.  We are to be married in July.

I am Orthodox; she is not, but I think she will come into the church perhaps next Pascha.  Still, I am very happy about this, but I still have some butterflies and anxieties.

Christ is risen!

Many Years!
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

Don't worry too much.  I have been married for 30 years and still have butterflies and anxieties.  Remember, on the sixth day, God created Man, and then He rested on the seventh.  Then, He created woman, and since then neither Man nor God has rested.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Congratulations and prayers.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

I pray that you both find comfort in your love for each other, and that Christ indwells your marital union.


Many years!

I recommend pre-marital counseling.  Besides that, congratulations!

Many years!

May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

God grant you both many years.

My prayers.
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.

Many years!
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.
