For Andrea Eleni who was tragically murdered
« on: May 24, 2011, 10:14:11 AM »
Please pray for Andrea Eleni, a vibrant 18 year old girl in our parish who we will be burying today.  She was tragically and violently murdered this past Friday, most of her remains burned in her car after her death when the perpetrators attempted to conceal their crime.  Her family is, of course, devastated, as is our parish family.  We all feel a deep, sorrowful loss and are greatly in need of everyone's prayers.

May her memory be eternal!
Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.

May her Memory be Eternal.

May God grant her peace, and her family and loved ones strength.

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.

Lord Jesus Christ have mercy.

May her memory be eternal.
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.

It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.
