Grandfather passing
« on: January 17, 2014, 12:13:16 PM »
We just found out this morning that my grandfather is not expected to last through the day. Please pray.
Will we all have to prove our Orthodoxy by adopting St Nicholas avatars now?

God be with him and all of you. My GF is going through the same thing right now.

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. (4/6/2015)

Glory to Jesus Christ!

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

So, sorry.  May his memory be eternal.
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.

Prayers going up and Lord have mercy up. May the angels guide him to Paradise.
