Pray also for his Grace Bishop NICHOLAS, recently assigned by Antiochian Metropolitan JOSEPH to the the Diocese of Miami and the Southeast.

And please remember his Grace Bishop ANTOUIN who recently retired.  Evidently there are some health issues as he is on the intercession list at Archdiocesan chapels.

Quote from: Nun M.
The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

Lord have mercy through the intercession of the saints and Theotokos.
I live in South Florida, which is expected to get the worst of Irma. The area where I live is expected to get winds of like 130mph but I am not in an evacuation zone.
So please pray for my safety, my family's safety and my home's which is already borderd up.

Dear Friends in Christ,

We are feeling so blessed right now! We thank you for your prayers and good thoughts. After so much stress, physical and mental exhaustion, and preparation for all possible scenarios (flooding, winds, rain, power outages and no clean water for weeks like our area suffered in Hurricane Andrew)--we are well. We have no real damage other than two downed trees, and most miraculously of all, power is back on!

Being that I am responsible for my elderly mother, not having air conditioning and fans for any extended period can be a scary prospect more than just an uncomfortable one.

Others have not been as fortunate...Our parish is reaching out to its parishioners, opening the doors for prayer, air conditioning and recharging phones, as well as any other assistance they may need. Prayers for their power to come back soon.

I have also donated to the charity of my choice for my fellow Floridians as I did for Texas...Lord have mercy..

Thank you again!

In Christ,
Alice
Most holy Mother of God, pray for us!

Just got back to my home last night. We have no electricity. I am posting at a restaurant down the road.

No injuries here. Minor damage to our roof.

I don't have to go to work until further notice.

Thanks be to God for His mercy.

Lord have mercy for us all. Thank you for your prayers.

Glory and thanks to God, our area was out of the hurricane's path. Lord, have mercy on those who lost lives and property.
Thank you, Everyone, for your prayers.
Alice and biro, thank you for the updates. TaiKamiya720, are you safe?
