Happy Birthday Fr. Peter
« on: June 04, 2011, 05:56:00 AM »
I noticed on the forum calendar that it is Fr. Peter Farrington's birthday today.

Fr. Peter, I pray you have a wonderful day surrounded by loved ones and that your wonderful ministries continue to abound in the fruits and blessings of the Lord's great Grace.

I'm sure there others on here who have had the privilege as I have had of engaging with Fr. Peter outside of religious forum discussions and who can thus empathise with me when I say that Fr. Peter is not only a marvellous source of knowledge and instruction, but he is also a very kindhearted and generous spirit.

Happy birthday!

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Happy Birthday.

God grant you many years. :)
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

Barekmor!
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.
