Prayers for mom
« on: February 14, 2016, 01:27:17 AM »
Mom has been up visiting me, and we just got the phone call that her other brother died.

Her other brother died just before thanksgiving. So this is a huge burden of sadness on her.

Keep her in your prayers if you remember.

Lord have mercy
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.

Lord, have mercy.
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

Mom and I will start the 1100 mile drive back to CA this afternoon.  Pray for our safety and her comfort during the journey (she has back issues)

I'm so sorry for your loss.

May God strengthen your mother and loved ones in this time of grief.

Memory 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.
—St. Isaac of Syria
