Prayers for Noel
« on: March 13, 2006, 12:37:02 AM »
Noel , age 15 is a friend of mine, who suffers from a congenital metabolic disorder, which causes the body to lose essential minerals. After a recent fall, he suffered acute pain in his legs. A M R test revealed that both his hip bones are deteriorating. He is in need of an urgent operation. And is now bedridden.

There are also financial issues involved as he lost his father some time ago. This family needs your prayers.

Christ have mercy.

Lord, have mercy on him and his family!
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Lord, have mercy.
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
