Heart thread - 05/25/2010

+ Aιωνία η Mνήμη, Ιωάννης-1034-Ελλάδα.
+ Memory Eternal, John-1034-Greece
Αγαπητοί φίλοι και συλλειτουργοί στην Αγία Τράπεζα, χθες στη Μεγάλη Γιορτή της Αγίας Πεντηκοστής, ο Αρχιμανδρίτης Γεώργιος (Φαναριώτης), γνωστή και ως «Ιωάννης-1034-Ελλάδα», κοιμήθηκε στον Άγιο Τριαδικό Θεό, με την υπόσχεση της θεώσεως σε την Ανάσταση του Θεάνθρωπο Ιησού Χριστό. + Aιωνία η μνήμη. + Aιωνία η μνήμη. + Aιωνία η μνήμη. Χριστός Ανέστη!
Dearest Friends and Concelebrants of the Holy Table, yesterday at the Great Feast of the Holy Pentecost, the Archimandrite George (Fanariotis), also known as «John-1034-Greece», fell asleep in the Holy Triune God, with the promise of theosis in the Resurrection of the God-Human Jesus Christ. + Memory Eternal. + Memory eternal. + Memory eternal. Christ is risen!
May he rest in peace and rise in glory. One of the founders of JN1034 who bore pain and offered it to God, Archimandrite George has done so much for us all.

My coworker Shea has asked for prayers of healing. She suffers pain in her knee and is walking with crutches, awaiting the MRI that may explain what has happened. May diagnosis, treatment, and healing be soon and effective.

For Jonathan for healing of his eye, for courage and hope and endurance, for discernment, and for employment.

For a stopping of the oil flow and the healing of the waters and the land. [This is a very long-term prayer, alas.]

For those trying to bring international aid to Gaza (see here).

For the people of Jamaica caught between the government and the drug gangs.

Washington Post - ‎7 hours ago‎
By AP AP -- As of Tuesday, May 25, 2010, at least 4400 members of the US military had died in the Iraq war since it began in March 2003....
For Tammy and Lori. It has not been a good 24 hours.

Please add your own intercessions and thanksgivings in the comments.

Heavenly Father, you called your servant Bede, while still a child, to devote his life to your service in the disciplines of religion and scholarship: Grant that as he labored in the Spirit to bring the riches of your truth to his generation, so we, in our various vocations, may strive to make you known in all the world; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Christ is the Morning Star who, when the night of this world is past, brings to his saints the promise of the Light of Life and opens everlasting day.
