EL CAJON CHURCH DAMAGED BY ARSON
« on: January 28, 2013, 07:41:05 AM »
The Saint Gregory of Nyssa Greek Orthodox Church in El Cajon, CA was the target of arson in the early hours of Sunday, January 27, 2013. The fire originated on the patio area and spread into the attic, causing significant smoke damage to the church and its contents. The church was unoccupied at the time of the fire, and no injuries were sustained...

Lord, have mercy!

From the article:  “We are grateful to God for keeping free from danger the faithful of Saint
Gregory of Nyssa. It is my hope and prayer that the church facilities and
furnishings may be restored in the very near future, allowing the congregation
to once again convene for worship in their church home,” stated His Eminence
Metropolitan Gerasimos of San Francisco. “The firefighters are to be commended
for their swift action, and we are thankful for their safety.”

A man who set fire to a Greek Orthodox church in Rancho San Diego and attacked a cellmate four days after his arrest pleaded guilty Monday to arson and assault with intent to commit mayhem.

Pursuant to his plea and following a full evaluation by mental health professionals, attorneys on both sides agreed that Darin Wayne Williams was legally insane at the time of both offenses.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

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
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
