For our Archbishop
« on: October 24, 2013, 04:38:52 PM »
I would appreciate if you would say a prayer for our (retired) Archbishop, Gabriel. He has been sick for some time and from what I can see, it isn't exactly going in the right direction.
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

Lord, have mercy on your servant.  If it is Your will, grant him healing.  St. Panteleimon, pray for us!
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

O Holy Hierarchs of Christ, intercede to the Lord God on His servant's behalf!
Quote from: The Life of Ivan Neronov
[Ecclesiastics] conspired against him because they hated his teaching for its zealous emphasis on proper Christian conduct: with great courage he denounced all whom he saw behaving in an ungodly fashion... [As such] he was deprived of his priestly rank, bound in iron chains, and broken down in jails.

Lord have mercy and grant him strength and good health.
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

Most Blessed Lord, have mercy.

Memory Eternal!

Quote
"But the righteous live forever,
and their reward is with the Lord;
the Most High takes care of them.
Therefore they will receive a glorious crown
and a beautiful diadem from the hand of the Lord,
because with his right hand he will cover them,
and with his arm he will shield them." (Wisdom 5:15-16)

"He is God not of the dead, but of the living." (Matthew 22:32)

"Your children shall become the head, but you... will become the tail of the Church; therefore your judges will be those who have always preserved the Catholic Faith... they will be the Orthodox and true Catholics since they have never accepted heretics... but have remained zealous for the True Faith."
