Prayers for strengthened faith
« on: June 03, 2017, 05:34:40 PM »
Christ is in our midst!

I spent the past year in a weird kind of spiritual dryness and apathy that had me missing weeks of church and questioning Orthodoxy. Thanks be to the Good Shepherd who brought me back into the flock in time for Holy Week. After a joyful few weeks, I feel the training wheels being taken off again, and so I ask for all your prayers to support this sinner through the coming months.
"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust." --Psalm 91: 1-2

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.
