For students, and for a friend
« on: December 11, 2004, 01:21:11 PM »
This is that time of the semester where students are the most stressed; finals time.  I am requesting prayers for all of us students enduring such physical and mental torment, and especially for some enduring much more than others.  A friend in my class, who also lives in the apartment above me, lost her mother a few days ago.  Lisa's mother had been sick with every disease under the sun for many years.  I have yet to see Lisa and am not sure how she is coping and what she is doing regarding school.  Please pray for her comfort and the repose of her mother, Mrs. Szwarcberg.  I don't know her first name, nor the religious affiliation of the family.

May she find rest in the bosom of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Prayers for Lisa, her mother (memory eternal!), and her family...and prayers for all students.
