Metropolitan Jonah's sister
« on: November 14, 2012, 11:23:54 AM »
Please pray for Laurie, Metropolitan Jonah's sister.  She fell ill last week, and has been in intensive care ever since. 

She has been chrismated Orthodox, and her patron is St. Laura of Cordoba.
He spoke it as kindly and heartily as could be; as if a man dashed a gallon of cold water in your broth and never doubted you'd like it all the better.

Kyrie eleison! Senhor, tem piedade!
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Lord have mercy!
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 on Laurie.
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.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

I will not be posting or participating here anymore.
They claim this is an Orthodox Christian forum.
Well, it is not!

Found out while at church this morning.  May Laura's memory be eternal!

Please pray for Metropolitan Jonah, and their heartbroken parents, James and Louise.
