« on: September 07, 2011, 06:46:58 PM »
A plane carrying the Russian ice hockey club Lokomotiv crashed shortly after takeoff near Yaroslavl. Forty-three people were killed.

From the article:
Quote
The chairman of the board of directors of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), Vyacheslav Fetisov, described the air disaster as an "irreparable loss for world ice hockey".

A horrible accident. Hopefully it convinces the Russian charter companies to get planes that aren't falling apart.

Lord have mercy on those who died, and on the two survivors.

Lord have mercy. May their memory be eternal.

Lord have mercy on the two survivors.


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.

Very sad. Lord, have mercy. May their memory be eternal.

Alexander Galimov, who had been a survivor of the crash, has passed away in a Moscow hospital. He was 26. Crew member Alexander Sisov is the last alive from the crash. He is in serious but stable condition.

Short of a miracle, there was no way Galimov would survive his injuries.



May their memory be eternal.
