Terminally ill priest

Please pray for Father Dimitri, who is expected to live for only a few months. He was our parish priest many years ago, and is much loved.

May the Most Holy Theotokos, come to the aid of the Servant of God Father Dimitri, and comfort him and strengthen him at this time of his life,May she intercede for him, that he may carry his cross with patience and love and finish the race victorious and may the Lord have mercy on him and shelter him, strengthen him comfort him, and give him peace. May the Lord have mercy on the parishioners his servant ministered to, and bless the remaining time they have with him, for their edification and comfort. 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.

Lord have mercy!
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom
