My workplace is under physical threat right now, and I'm in
« on: November 16, 2016, 11:29:03 AM »
Due to riots around a neighbouring building, our building has been locked with us inside and there are rubber bullets and pepper spray everywhere. We're OK since it's a high floor but some people by the window have been hurt by the gas, and we can't get out... Please pray for us urgently. Lord have mercy!

"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.

Thanks be to God, I, my colleagues and our boss waited for a break, got down and security was letting people out. I didn't see or smell any gas. It's all fine for us now, and I thank you for your prayers, but people who are or will be there could still use some. :)

Lord have mercy.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Same thing, but worse. I even got my own share of pepper spray in the air trying to leave the building, but I'm back to my own floor. Lord have mercy.

Edit: My co-workers just found their way here too, glory be to God.

Lord, have mercy.  Be safe getting home.  Pray to your guardian angel to protect you!
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.

Everything seems to be fine right now. I'll just wait a bit more since there are vespers in 2h.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
