Pray for the sick priests
« on: October 21, 2012, 10:43:42 AM »
Hello all

Some might remember my going through a tough battle where i expressed some concerns not getting help. Well, today i learned that my priest have had a collapse (medical term) and it is not the first time. This is that time when you realize that your questions and concerns are just irrelevant. We do not know yet how serious it is, but i am so sorry and worried for him now.

So please pray for Fr. Kliment (St Olga Parish, Oslo-Norway (ROCOR) and all the sick, burnt out and weary priest that are overloaded with work, stress and not enough time to recover.
I will not be posting or participating here anymore.

Lord, have mercy on Fr. Kliment and on all clergy who are ill. Grant them healing.
Lord, have mercy on all clergy who are weary or discouraged.

Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

Please keep praying for him still as he has become ill again after his surgery. On a trip to aid a fellow parishoner that had a break-in at her holiday house, he became ill again as he do not rest enough.

With final class coming up in two weeks, prepararions for the Great Lent and talks with me, I am worried for him and for the parish.
The air is full of uncertainty when he is absent like now.

I also offer prayers for all sick priest, sick clergy, laymen and people in the parishes being affected by them.
Lord have mercy.

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 Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on Father Klimet, through the intercessions of the most Holy Theotokos, of St. John the Wonderworker and all the saints, for blessed are thou unto the ages of ages amen.


Tom, you can email or call other ROCOR parishes and ask a priest there to pray a moleben, or ask your new godparent to direct you.  You can even contact by email here in the US at the Joy of All Who Sorrow Cathedral where St. John's relics are, and ask for name to be included on a list for a moleben to be prayed.  He worked and continues to work many miracles.  They can send you some Holy Oil from the vigil lamp by his relics.
