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.

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

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.

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."

May the Blessed Light shine Forth

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