An unworthy Deacon, named for the brother of God: James, striving to "work out his salvation with fear and trembling" within the Tradition (paradosis) of the Eastern Orthodox Faith. It is a strange and marvelous journey, and I am accompanied by the fourfold fruit of my fecundity. My wife, the Matushka or Diaconissa Sophia, is my beloved partner in the pursuit of Theosis, and she ranks me in every way.
For our Fr. Dcn. Mark who was hospitalized yesterday for an as of yet undiagnosed serious condition.
My wife and I were speaking just the other day and we both recognized the absurdity of how we treat prayer. We often say things like "Well, all we can do is pray" as if to suggest there could be something more efficacious or important that might be done under better circumstances? Where's our faith?
Thank God we can always pray. Please do.

I heard about this, and have forwarded the request to our parish's prayer list. Lord have Mercy, Lord have Mercy, Lord have Mercy.
