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. Please pray for her to receive Holy Communion soon, and thereafter frequently.  Thank you for your support.

In Christ our God,

Michael

Lord have mercy on Melanie, and help to inspire her to find a priest she feels she can discuss this matter with!

Lord, have mercy.

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."

Gregory of Sinai, On Commandments and Doctrines
