Prayers for Seminary Graduates
« on: May 21, 2014, 09:41:22 AM »
The 2014 class of Christ the Savior Seminary in Johnstown, Pa is graduating tomorrow, Thursday, May 22, 2014. Remember in your prayers the graduates, Deacon Joseph and Seminarians Matthew and Daniel. May they see the good things of Jerusalem all the days of their lives and may their labors in the Vineyard of our Lord be fruitful and long lasting. Many Years! Mnohaja i Blahaja Lit! Christ is Risen.

Lord have mercy.
I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

Lord have mercy and aid these men in their ministries.
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 and Many Years.
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.

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
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
