Grandfather passed away.
« on: December 21, 2014, 08:25:38 PM »
My grandfather Mihailo (77) has died in December of 17th, after 15 years of struggling with illness and surviving over 34 operations on his throat. His last wish was to celebrate his patron saint, saint Nikolai the Miracle-worker (December 19th). Please pray for him.

Memory eternal :(
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Memory Eternal!

Perhaps, he got his wish.

May the Lord forgive all trespasses, and grant His servant Mihailo eternal rest among His saints.

Вічна пам'ять.
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.

Lord have mercy.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Today is 40 days since grandfather Mihailo passed away. I hope God received his soul to wait resurrection in light with angels.

Memory eternal.  I hope his patron St. Nicholas the Wonderworker received him at the gate.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.
