Prayers for journey
« on: August 11, 2017, 01:14:18 AM »
Today I met with an Orthodox priest I know and opened my heart to him about my attraction to Orthodoxy.  He kindly agreed to walk this journey with me and, hopefully, be patient when I struggle.


Please, remember to intercede for me in your prayers.

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

Glory to God! Lord, have mercy on your servant.

Quote from: Seekingtrue
Yes we who are far from sainthood we can recognize a living saint and I'm talking from personal experience.Yes they are gentle soo gentle it can not be described it is like gentleness and humility in one and also they have this light this energy it's beyond words...and when you are near them you feel ecstatic and very happy

Lord Have Mercy on Sharbel.
O strange Orthodox Church, so poor and weak, with neither the organization nor the culture of the West, staying afloat as if by a miracle in the face of so many trials, tribulations and struggles; a Church of contrasts, both so traditional and so free, so archaic and so alive, so ritualist and so personally involved, a Church where the priceless pearl of the Gospel is assiduously preserved, sometimes under a layer of dust; a Church which in shadows and silence maintains above all the eternal val
