For my uncle and father
« on: March 03, 2015, 11:15:33 AM »
My father had what he thought was a heart attack at work. Went to the hospital and found out it wasnt a heart attack. They checked for blockages as his heart isnt beating right, but they found none. Now hes getting a heart monitor to help diagnose whats wrong. Pray that everything turns out ok.

I also just found out my uncle has cancer. I forget the name of this particular condition, but he has multiple cancers all throughout his skeletal system. Although this is no cure, there are treatments. Pray for his health, and for my family during this time.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

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.

Lord, have mercy!

St. Panteleimon, pray for us!
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Lord, have mercy on your servants.
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.
