Happy birthday, Theophania!

This is the day Theophania's parents made, let us rejoice and be glad* in it. 

Happy birthday! 







*But not too much, since it's Lent. 

Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.

Happy Birthday Theophania!

I'm not clapping or singing though!

I am a day late and a dollar short, but I too would like to exclaim my joy at Theophania's parents marital bliss and the result so many years ago.
If your leg causes you to creak, cut it off.  It is better to practice hesychasm with one leg than with two legs, one noisy, to abandon silence and the prayer.

May God grant you many happy and healthy years, Theophania!
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.

Happy birthday
"For what shall it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his soul?" - Mark 8:36 (DRA)

Do Thou, O Sovereign lady,
By Thy joy-bestowing honorable Icon "Queen of All,"
Save those who with fervent desire implore Thy grace;
Deliver from afflictions those who run to Thee;
From all dangers do Thou guard Thy flock,
Who ever call upon Thine intercession.

It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

I know someone who hated birthdays, and he always quoted Jeremiah 20:14

I don't particularly mind birthdays but I had to work tonight so that was a bit of a downer.

Sorry to hear that.  If it makes it you feel any better, I spent multiple birthdays studying for board exams
