Prayers for communion
« on: April 04, 2006, 05:29:13 PM »
Please pray for my fiancee Melanie.  She has only received Holy Communion once in the last 2 years, and unless she makes a drastic change in her fight against the passions, she will probably choose to abstain even on Holy Pascha.

In Christ our God,

"And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us..."

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, 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...
