Prayers for Catechumenate and health
« on: November 07, 2011, 02:28:13 AM »
Hello, everyone.

I will enter the catechumenate this coming Sunday. Please pray for my union with you all in Christ this Christmas.

Also been a little concerned about my health lately, so pray that the will of God be done in all things.

Thank you!

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy.
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.

Thank you.

I would also like to ask for prayers for the 5 other catechumens who will be received on the Sunday before Christmas with me.

Lord have mercy!

Nicholas may I ask what prompted you to become a catechumen?

My priest prefers to make people catechumens at the beginning of the fast before the feast during which they will be baptised, Pascha or Christmas if possible. The New Calendar Nativity fast starts on the 15th, if I'm remembering correctly.

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.

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
