This weekend, I recieved the sad new of a fatal car accident in which a young Greek Orthodox man named Nicholas (a tonsured reader), his girlfriend Stephanie (who was a catechumen converting from Roman Catholicism), and three of their friends were killed. Nicholas was buried yesterday; I did not personally know him (he was "a friend of a friend of a friend," so to speak), but I understand this young man in his 20's touched the lives of many people. Metropolitan Isaiah even wrote a eulogy for him, which in itself attests to the character of this life cut short. Please pray for his repose, along with Stephanie's and the other three people (whose names I do not know). May their memories be eternal.
