For me - but also I'll prayer for you during the pilgrimage
« on: August 12, 2017, 03:36:35 PM »
Tomorrow, as every year since 2009, I'm going to the foot pilgrimage to the Holy Mount Grabarka. So, I'll mention you in my prayers.

However, I'm also the one that needs your prayers.

For one year, actually, even more, I've been passing for difficult time. Family problems - they've been almost all my life. Calendar problems and with my priest - for 3 years, but, well, for a few months it's much better, thanks God. During last year a few people that were important for me/I liked passed away. Especially one death was important - on the 16th August fr. Zbigniew died, I wrote about it here. He has been the one of the most important persons in my life.

Tomorrow we will be passing next to the cemetery in which he's bured (quite amazing), but my priest hasn't allowed me to stop there to say a prayer. So tomorrow and 16th August will be difficult days for me.

Moreover, I have problems regarding my personal life. Unfortunately, fr. Zbigniew was my first love. In some moment he also liked me (not fell in love, but really liked and felt in some way attracted to me). Other (and only) 2 guys that I liked as males and vice versa got married during the last year. Despite having a lot of friends, I feel lonely, I need to be finally in a relationship, to have a chance in a future to create a true Domestic Church via marriage. And it's not so easy to meet a man to do it.

Sorry for a long post.

I will pray for you and for the issues you mentioned. Lord have mercy!

Please pray for me the sinner, maybe also that no one will break my heart again. But especially that I will also be able to make this pilgrimage one day... I have been thinking about this for 5 years or so and never managed.

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

Lord Have Mercy!!!
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

Lord have mercy
Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.
