Pray for Mina mauled by large dog
« on: October 29, 2015, 02:17:52 PM »
I was just told that Mina, a Romanian field worker was mauled by a large dog. His injuries are bad. his forearm was torn to pieces and it is feared that he will not be able to use that arm again. If he recovers, and I pray that he does, it's happened at the worst time for him economically since he will not be able to work for duration of the winter olive harvest. I understand he doesn't even have health insurance!

He is a gentle guy, always ready to lend a hand. Please pray for his quick and full recovery.

Lord have mercy.

Lord, have mercy.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.

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.

Poor guy. :( Lord have mercy on him.
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.

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.

I hope they did something with the dog so it doesn't hurt anyone else.

Also, Lord be with Mina!
This is something cute and innocent.

St. Mina, offer a healing hand and pray for your spiritual son in Christ!

Also, Lord be with Mina!

The dog was chained and he had seen Mina on other occasions. Somehow it broke free and it attacked him, though I doubt Mina did anything to provoke it, he likes dogs.

Another worker managed to get it off of him but in the process got his elbow bitten and looks like he also will be unable to work.

I expect the dog will be put down. The attack was too vicious to allow it to live.

Now they just have to find the owner. He seems to have vanished :(
