Family Emergency
« on: September 15, 2013, 09:52:54 PM »
Around 1330 MDT on Sunday 2013.09.15, my mother Jane packed her bags and disappeared from her home in Tooele, Utah, leaving behind her new husband and two of my three sisters (the third sister is in a mission trip in Guatemala and has no knowledge of this at all). We have no idea where she is, where she is going, or what her intentions are. I simply ask for everyone to give up prayers for her safety and safe return to her family that loves her.

Thank you.

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

Lord, have mercy on Jane and her family.

"Lord have mercy."


Selam
“Universe,” “love,” “eternity,” “brotherhood,” “peace,” “life,” “justice,” “truth,” “God”… These are big words. Very big words. But not nearly big enough. They can’t be defined; they can only be lived.

Praise God.  Is she ok?
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

Lord, have mercy!!!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Unfortunately, she has disappeared again. My father and I are now leaving to help the situation. Please pray for our travels as well.
