My Uncle Has Died
« on: May 17, 2015, 09:53:51 PM »
You may recall about a year ago or so I made a request regarding my uncle and his cancer. Well, today he has died and prayers for him would be appreciated. He was the only other Orthodox person in my family apart from myself so I am a bit more down about it than I thought I'd be. Thank you. His name was Roy.

Lord, have mercy.
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.

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

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Memory Eternal.

Lord, have mercy on JamesR.

May his memory be eternal, and may he rest in the bosoms of our fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  And may he pray for us and for James for the Lord to have mercy on him.
