Prayers for Father Archimandrite Serge Keleher
« on: August 27, 2011, 07:25:39 PM »
In your mercy, please remember Father Archimandrite Serge Keleher in your prayers. Members here who do or have posted at ByzCath will know Father for his regular contributions as a poster there.
 
Father Serge is pastor of Holy Hieromartyr Nicholas Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church in Dublin and the only Eastern Catholic priest serving in Ireland. He was admitted to the hospital at the beginning of the week. and subsequently had surgery. His post-operative recovery has been beset by a number of complications and his condition is very serious.

Lord protect your servant, the Priest, Serge, and restore him to health and Your service.
"Not only is it unnecessary to adopt the customs of the Latin Rite to manifest one's Catholicism, it is an offense against the unity of the Church."

I just saw this and it is very sad news.

Also Pani Rose and Deacon Stan are in my prayers.

I don't suppose you could get a note to Pani Rose for me eventually and let her know I am praying for her...

Mary,

I'll be glad to do that.

Many years,

Also I'd like to have a way of reaching her if that's possible...not now, but later.  My email address is in my profile.  That whole situation makes me cry.  She is such a dear soul.  And Father Serge is such an old crustacean that its difficult to think of him so vulnerable...

Lord have mercy!

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 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.

I ask that, in your charity, you renew your prayers for Father Archimandrite Serge (Keleher), who has now been hospitalized for close to 12 weeks. According to the most recent news from Dublin, Father's condition improved very slightly. He took small amounts of fluid, has recognized a few persons and spoken a few words. However, his condition is still listed as gravely critical and doctors do not expect him to live much longer.

Lord, look with love on Your beloved son, the Priest Serge, who has served You with devotion these many years and, if it is Your Will, allow him to recover that he may resume his earthly ministry for You.

Hospodi pomiluj!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
