Prayers for the departed
« on: March 14, 2006, 05:48:35 PM »
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

Lord, have mercy.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.
