Till Afterwards
« on: January 03, 2016, 09:59:34 PM »
I was debating whether to make a thread about this, revive an old thread, or what, if anything. Anyway, so this'll be the last time I'll mention it as a prayer request. If you would, please say a prayer for Mary Cecilia, who passed away 6 years (and 1 day) ago. Most feelings and emotional connections have faded for me at this point, but what remains is a sense of my own responsibilities, at least the ones I can do something about, so I thought to mention it one more/last year.

Lord have mercy on the soul of Mary Cecilia
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.

O God of spirits and of all flesh, who have trampled down death and overthrown the Devil, and given life to the world, give rest to the soul of your departed servant Mary Cecilia in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Pardon every transgression which she had committed whether by word or deed or thought, as you are a good God who loves mankind; as there is no one who lives and does not sin, for you only art without sin, you righteousness to all eternity, your word the truth.

You are the Resurrection, the Life, and the Repose of you servant who has fallen asleep, O Christ our God, and unto you we ascribe the glory, together with the Father who is from everlasting and the all-holy, good, and life-creating Spirit, now and ever unto ages of ages. Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, remember your servant Justin and have mercy on him.
"Love ... is an abyss of illumination, a mountain of fire ... . It is the condition of angels, the progress of eternity" (Climacus).

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.

May her memory be eternal.
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.

Memory Eternal +++

Lord have mercy on those who were touched by her love and her presence.

Lord have mercy on us all.

Thank you God for those who lived and gave us loving memories.

Memory Eternal.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

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.
