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

memory eternal
Quote from: Michael, Pope of Rome
We should fortify ourselves with the truths of the Faith. Our main focus should be to become saints. Unfortunately some spend much of their time in either trying to sort things out or what is worse, trying to convince the world that they are right. If we all aim at sanctifying ourselves, God will intervene and He will straighten things out. We cannot do it without Him.

Lord have mercy.
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

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.
