Pray for Fr. Michael, seriously injured in car accident
« on: May 10, 2013, 10:34:52 PM »
Remember in your prayers the Protopresbyter Michael Rosco, pastor of St. John's Orthodox Church in Perth Amboy, NJ. He was seriously injured near Johnstown, PA returning from a Diocesan meeting this evening and is in a local ICU. Lord have mercy on your servant, the priest Michael, ease his pain and grant him a speedy recovery.

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

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!  :(

My husband and I had the privilege of meeting him on our PA trip last October. Definitely keeping him in our prayers.

Fr. Michael was always kindly and quiet in a peaceful sense.  We will miss him. I imagine that the gates of heaven opened to receive him this morning with glorious light - just like the doors to his Church opened, the interior bathed in light, to the refrain of Christos Voskrese for Father just a few short days ago at the beginning of the Paschal Matins. Greeting him today no doubt were his boyhood priest, +Fr John Hutnyan; +Bishop John who ordained him; his dear friend, seminary rector and mentor, +Metropolitan Nicholas and his departed loved ones. Eternal Memory. Vichnaja Pamjat. Christ is Risen! Well done, good and faithful servant. Rest well as you await the Glorious Resurrection on the Day of Judgement. Christos Voskres!

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.
