Traveling out of the country for the first time.
« on: May 23, 2018, 02:29:08 PM »
If you have some time, please say a small prayer for this unworthy sinner and my girlfriend as we are making a trip together out of the country. I've never left America before.

Thanks.

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

Lord, have mercy.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

Like those full of White people. Those are the worst.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
