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.

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

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.
