John Royce [ Hypo Ortho]

On 1 December it will be 1 year since John reposed in the Lord.

I remember him with affection
"Never let anyone try to tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was fully Orthodox for a thousand years; and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."

I, too, remembered him in my morning prayers.

I was thinking of Hypo/John just yesterday.   :'(

Light perpetual shine upon him.

Eternal memory!  

O Thou Who with wisdom profound order all things with love, and Who gives to all what is needful, O only Creator, give rest, O Lord, to the souls of Thy servant, for on Thee he has set his hope, our Maker and Builder, and our God.
"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

My first Orthodox brother is in my prayers and is greatly missed.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I can't believe it has been one year since his repose. Eternal Memory!
Please Buy My Book!

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.
