Gospodi Pomilui!
"Two Romes fell, a third stands, and there will not be a fourth one."-Philotheus of Pskov

Christ is risen from the dead,
Trampling down death by death,
And upon those in the tombs
Bestowing life!- Paschal troparion

Lord have mercy.
"When you don’t live with Christ, you live in melancholy, in sorrow, in anxiety and in worry. You don’t live properly… The best medicine is to devote yourself to the worship of Christ. Everything is cured. Everything works properly."

~ St. Porphyrios


"The Church is indeed 'Apostolic'.  But the Church is also 'Patristic'.  And only by being 'Patristic' is the Church continuously 'Apostolic'."

Lord have mercy!

From the BCP: ETERNAL God, who alone spreadest out the heavens, and rulest the raging of the sea; We commend to thy almighty protection, thy servant, for whose preservation on the great deep our prayers are desired. Guard him, we beseech thee, from the dangers of the sea, from sickness, from the violence of enemies, and from every evil to which he may be exposed. Conduct him in safety to the haven where he would be, with a grateful sense of thy mercies; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
I stare at the screen, my fingers gliding across the keypad. Uninformed opinions appear in neat rows of text. They are my own. "Click post!" Pride whispers gleefully into my ear. I obey without resistance.
Please disregard everything I say.

The number of my days would have been made clear but for my Saviour, who gave strength to my arms, raised me out of the water, and increased the count.

May our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, bless all who have striven, in prayer and in deed, for the sake of this unworthy and unfortunate soul.

Grant this, O Lord.
Glory to God.
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Pray for me, a wretched sinner.

Glory to Our God.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Later then usual but I managed to get out here again. Much the same situation as last year, but it looks like that could very well change.

A fellow fisherman's boat burned down some days ago but everyone made it off unharmed. We're experiencing issues of our own and no doubt many others are as well.

Say a prayer for the lot of us, if you will.
