Prayers for safe travels
« on: May 27, 2016, 05:07:07 PM »

My eldest nephew Andrew, will be traveling with His Grace Bishop Daniel and the College Mission Team from the UOC of USA, to Ukraine - to visit two orphanages.  These children are mostly handicapped as a result of the aftereffects from Chernobyl.

I ask prayers that everyone should have a safe journey, stay healthy, grow spiritually and return invigorated and eager to find additional avenues through which to continue serving the Lord.

This will be my nephew's first time out of the country, and first time on a plane.  He's a shy young man and I pray God keep him, and the entire team, safe beneath His wing.

Lord, have mercy and grant a peaceful, safe and fulfilling journey to all...and good health to the team members and the orphans.


 
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

Lord have mercy on them.
"The business of the Christian is nothing else than to be ever preparing for death (μελεπᾷν ἀποθνήσκειν)."

— Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, Fragment XI

Modernist thinking and being consists of nothing but uncritical acceptance.

Lord have mercy.
Christ turned the world upside down; and when the world was viewed from such a remarkable perspective, it suddenly made sense -- Fr Andrew Greeley

Lord, have mercy.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

"O Saviour, who hast journeyed with Luke and Cleopas to Emmaus, journey with thy servants as they now set out upon their way, and defend them from all evil."

Lord, have mercy!
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
