RIP Helen

Brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus,

Please remember in your prayers the handmaid of God Helen, my wife's grandmother, who passed away earlier today at the age of 93 after a long illness.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

May Helen's 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.
