My younger brother Christian passed away suddenly last Sunday night.
I would appreciate your prayers. Our family is devastated.

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

Memory eternal. May the Lord have mercy on you all and comfort you.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

Quote from: Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica
Only one person who is prayerfully connected to God is needed, and we will have peace everywhere -- in the family, at work, in the government, and everywhere.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

He said he had a horrible house
I looked in it and learnt to shut my mouth

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

May the Lord remember him in His Kingdom and comfort those who mourn his passing.

Memory Eternal.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

I'm so sorry for your loss.  May the Theotokos bring you and your family comfort in this time.

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.
