For Metropolitan Volodomyr
« on: April 18, 2012, 02:29:35 PM »
I was moved by this clip of a very frail, elderly Bishop this past Holy Saturday. Remember in your prayers, the archpriest Volodomyr, Bishop and Metropolitan of Kiev, raise him from his bed of pain and grant that he may spend the remainder of his days in Your service. Eis polla eti, Despota! Christos Voskres! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAzSu-izZkw&feature=g-vrec&context=G25fa62dRVAAAAAAAACg

Hospodi pomiluj! Mnohaja Ljeta!
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

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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy!

Thank you for this video, the dignity of the elderly, the suffering is even more magnified in the Light of Christ. Christ is all and in all.
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.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

His Eminence visited the U.S. several years ago, a tour coordinated by the OCA.  If I recall correctly, his visit had something to do with the icon that Archbishop John of Chicago, of blessed memory, had retrieved from the Soviets.  I saw him at "The [Cleveland] Plain Dealer," at the time, its publisher was a devout Orthodox Christian, Alex Macheskee (sp).  His title is Metropolitan of St. Petersburg and Ladoga.  I was very moved just by the presence of His Eminence, you knew you were in the presence of a Godly, holy, humble man.  God bless him.
