Prayers for the recently deceased, Alexander Elliot Divis
« on: June 30, 2014, 09:34:18 PM »
The son of a friend of my wife from High School reposed yesterday after a fight with cancer (non-Hodgkin lymphoma) which he has been waging for nearly two years.  He was only 11 years old.  He had a bone marrow transplant which ended up not working.  He was on his "Make a Wish" trip to Yosemite, but the family had to cut it short because he wasn't doing so well.

May Alexander's memory be eternal!

Memory 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.

Indeed.

May his memory be eternal.
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.
