Most Holy Theotokos, save us!

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.

In Christ,

Rdr. Michael

And an inheritor of the line of the Baptist
A righteous son of India
And a new apostle to the internet
O Holy Mor Ephrem,
Intercede for us, that our forum may be saved.
