Lord, have mercy!

Welcome.

You will be in my prayers, Angelo.
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

Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

Dear Angelo: Make sure you touch base with a clinic to get some help; it's hard to shake it alone. You are in my prayers.

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Welcome, Angelo.
I, too, suffer often from anxiety and depression.
May God grant us peace.

Lord have mercy! Tonight you will be in my prayers during Great Vespers.
If you have PMed me, the mods have taken my ability to PM away. Please see my email if you wish to contact me during my time of trial.

welcome Angelo,
May the Lord break the chain of addiction from us.Lord  have mercy!
May the Lord take away the anxiety and depression, and give us peace! Lord have mercy!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
