Could you please pray for my priest, Fr. T___   and his wife, Mat. A___.   

Our parish found out on Friday that they lost their baby.  I believe matushka was 5 months pregnant, and my priest spoke to the parish about having to go to the hospital today before burying their child tomorrow.  My priest is much affected by the loss, and I think that, although well counseled by spiritual men on the matter regarding the fate of unbaptized infants, he still struggles over all this. 

If you could pray for him, his wife, and for their deceased infant child, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your prayers.

They are actually burying their child this Thursday, which will be rough on them.

Lord have mercy!

The Lord's hand is not shortened that He cannot save.  When my sons asked about their old sibling whom we lost this way, I pointed to the icon of the Harrowing of Hell in the apse, and said "Jesus can still do that."

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
