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.

On an extended hiatus from this site. Please pray for me and my family.

I'm sorry to any that my posts might offend.

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.

In a fallen state of captivity, I seek to exchange Pearls of Wisdom with the few repentant Philokalists who roam this domain.

My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
