Prayer for Jobs
« on: August 06, 2005, 12:05:36 AM »
I pray for my family as both my parents were recently laid off of work. I am looking for a job but it is summer so all the other students have these jobs now. Hopefully in September, businesess will hire.

My favourite prayer from the liturgy of St. John, short and sweet is:

"Antilavou soson eleison kai diafilaxon imas o theos ti si khariti"

H Panagia Mazi mas,
                              Timos

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
