Prayers for my Grandfather
« on: April 28, 2005, 10:18:28 AM »
Hi Everybody,
Just wanted to ask that you pray for my grandfather, Protopriest Roman.
Last week an inoperable tumor was discovered at the base of his spine.  They expect to begin radiation soon after Pascha.  Despite it all, he remains in good spirits and is looking forward to serving the Pascha services.  Please pray for him.
Thanks.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Lord, have mercy on Protopriest Roman, his family, and his friends!

Prayers for your grandfather's healing and comfort.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Lord, have mercy.
Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.

You can count on prayers from me for your Grandfather, especially through the intercession of St. Panteleimon.

BTW, I love the Gnome!

Peace,
