The Monastery of St. John of San Francisco
« on: August 20, 2012, 10:49:15 AM »
Please pray for the Monastery, its members, and and all those affected by the Ponderosa fire.

According to the Cal Fire map (http://www.fire.ca.gov/fire_protection/firemaps.php), it is now within the fire zone.

Lord, have mercy.

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

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.
