A couple requests
« on: May 09, 2011, 05:38:30 PM »
Please pray for Father Nathan Monk. He posted on Facebook that a man threatened to beat him up while he was holding his "Feed The Poor" sign on a street corner. If you aren't familiar with him, here's a link to his YouTube channel:

Please pray for my friend Harold and his girlfriend. He is a buddy of mine and his girlfriend has been a bad influence on him. Because of her, he started doing cocaine and has recently seen that he needs to quit. However, his girlfriend is making it hard for him to do so. They also smoke pot and do other drugs. Pray that they quit these things and "find" the Lord.

Please pray for my online friend George. He's a Calvinist Christian, but has not done much to change his life for the Lord. He's going through a rough patch and told me that he is not ready to quit what he is doing in order to repent.

Lord, have mercy on these and bless them.
"Let the mouth also fast from disgraceful speeches and railings. For what does it profit if we abstain from fish and fowl and yet bite and devour our brothers and sisters? The evil speaker eats the flesh of his brother and bites the body of his neighbor. "
— St. John Chrysostom

If you spend long enough on this forum, you'll come away with all sorts of weird, untrue ideas of Orthodox Christianity.

I would suggest most persons in general avoid any question beginning with why.

Lord, have mercy.
"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.

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.
—St. Isaac of Syria
