Coworker's daughter died
« on: August 07, 2015, 09:39:54 PM »
My friend and coworker, Bob, was told this morning that his daughter, Kati, died unexpectedly.  She was pretty young, just graduated from college with a good job, no health issues and was engaged to be married soon.  Lord, have mercy.

Lord have mercy on the soul of Kati and comfort her loved ones
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.
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.
