I go to FIU, though I mostly go to the Biscayne Bay Campus. At the FIU Main Campus (not the campus I go to), there was a newly installed pedestrian bridge. Then Wednesday afternoon, the bridge suddenly collapsed on top of several cars, crushing them, killing 6 people, and injuring about 10. Please pray for all those victims of the bridge collapse. The bridge collapse also happened to be just about a month after the Stoneman Douglas school shooting, which happened not to far from where I live. Another school tragedy in South Florida right after one happened here a month ago.

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

The breath of Thine Holy Spirit inspires artists, poets and scientists. The power of Thy supreme knowledge makes them prophets and interpreters of Thy laws, who reveal the depths of Thy creative wisdom. Their works speak unwittingly of Thee. How great art Thou in Thy creation! How great art Thou in man!

Lord, have mercy on them. Memory eternal! I witnessed a bridge falling in my university once too, I was a kid and didn't even study there yet (my mother works there), pretty scary how these things can happen in one of the places one should feel the safest. If there be anyone responsible, may procedings be taken that they never make any such mistake again.
"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.

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

London is drowning, and I live by the river
