For the repose of the soul of Eddie
« on: October 26, 2011, 01:24:15 AM »
This old man at my Church passed away today.  He was trying to catch a fishing rod he accidentally dropped, fell, and hit his head.

I'm sure his family is very torn.  Our parish will be, too.  Once a drunk man stumbled into pre-sanctified liturgy and wouldn't leave.  Eddie chased him down the block.  Never have I seen an 80-something man run so fast.

Please pray for him.

May his 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

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

May the Lord have mercy on his soul! Memory Eternal! may the Lord give Comfort to his loved ones!
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.

May his Memory be Eternal!
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.

“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29
