A few hours ago, there were a lot of sirens and a helicopter overhead for at least 30 minutes to one hour. It seemed like eternity.

Then a few minutes ago, there was some kind of high speed chase with no sirens, just a lot of tires screeching when they rounded corners.

Please pray.

Most Holy Theotokos, save us.

Lord have mercy.
Not everything I type or have typed in the past is reflective of the teaching of the Orthodox Church, or may not reflect my contemporary views on a subject. (5/30/2015)

I am scaling back posting because the crack in my computer screen makes it harder and harder to type.

Lord, have mercy.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

Lord, have mercy!  What happened?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Lord have mercy!

I pray that peace has been restored, and all are well.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord,   have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

I do not know.

However, the 7-11 about two miles from us is constantly being robbed.
And we have druggies (meth labs) and gang-members near us.
Often we can smell marijuana smoke.

Lord have mercy. The night can be scary.

Please keep us in your prayers.
