Tragedy in NJ - Coptic Family slaughtered
« on: January 15, 2005, 02:29:31 AM »
A Coptic American Family was slaughtered in their home in Jew Jersey. Pray for the departed souls that the Lord may accept them in his Kingdom, for their family who will have unanswered questions about this tragedy so that the Lord may strengthen their faith and give them peace, and for everyone who knew the family.

The link for the news report on the tragedy is below:

In that day there will be an altar to the LORD in the heart of Egypt, and a monument to the LORD at its border. (Isaiah 19:19)

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
