For Mother Elisabeth
« on: July 13, 2017, 04:30:18 AM »
Please pray for Mother Elisabeth of Lintula Holy Trinity Convent. She went for a walk on tuesday evening and haven't been seen since and the sisterhood asks for intercession. The Police, the Border Guard and local volunteers from the area has been looking for her but with no avail. She is 73 years old and the monastery is in rural area so anything can happen.
I just need to find out how to say it in Slavonic!

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.

Kyrie eleison

Council of Nicea:
Εθη ἀρχαῖα κρατείτω. 
Mores antiqui obtineant.
The ancient ways shall prevail.

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

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.

Oh that's terrible. Hope they find her soon. Lord have mercy!
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.
