He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Go in peace, holy father.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

He joined the Monastery at only 17 years of age! :o He was truly a dedicated and faithful servant of the Almighty, even in his youth. If only I were 1/10Th the Christian he was.

Pray for us, Sayedna.

I pray that he is allowed to be laid to rest and that the terrorists do not attack during his funeral procession.

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
