What is going on with all this madness!!??!?!!!?!?!?!
And then there’s this, about a threat the day before:
It’s the second threat in as many days for St. Rose, according the Washington Post. On Saturday, the church displayed posters for parishioners to express their grief. However, an unknown prankster wrote, “This is just round one,” on one of them, the pastor said.
I’m assuming everyone is following the news, both overseas news and the campus evacuations in the United States. Even if the campus evacuations turn out to be a prank, it’s still a sign of how things are.
It looks like a day to be deep in prayer, for all who are able.
A dear friend of mine’s father has just passed away in a car crash.
Please pray for the repose of his soul and for my friend and her family please.
“This Sunday (Second Sunday after Pascha, Sunday of the Myrrhbearers), a new bishop will be ordained in our church. I am aware that you probably do not belong to my specific group of Orthodoxy, but our bishops’ decisions impact all of us Orthodox Christians everywhere.
So please, play for Hieromonk Gregory (God willing, future Bishop Gregory). He is Georgian, and he speaks Georgian, Spanish, Russian, and English.
God bless. Christ is Risen!”

One of our sisters from North Cluster was in an accident today at school.
Please just take a second to pray for Abby.

A second student has died. And obviously the shooter is troubled.
The entire community is in need of prayer.
My aunt and uncles house blew up. My cousin was inside. He had 3rd degree burns so badly that the doctors had to cut 90% of his skin off, to the muscle. He has a 1% chance of survival. Please, pray, please..
I’m praying so hard right now. <3
PRAYER SIGNAL BOOST!
ALL OF HEAVEN NEEDS TO GET ON THIS! LET’S GO!
Yesterday there was a blog going around by someone on Tumblr who was threatening suicide. I re-blogged it, but not without some thought first. I took it down this morning.
I had conflicting thoughts about it. First, after visiting the Tumblr site, there was no way to send a private message of support, a message of prayer. This blogger seems to be struggling with a very severe depression. I wanted to somehow let him (or her?) see that many of us do care. That’s why I reblogged it.
I checked this morning, and the blogger was still blogging, and still hurting.
I ended up deleting the post because I just didn’t know how to judge the situation. While some people take comfort in support, for others, it’s kind of a stage, where when there is enough attention on them, that’s when they follow through. Some of that might be because they feel backed into a corner at some point. I don’t know, but I don’t want to contribute to that, either.
Then I started thinking about all the others like that person who are out there, people for whom every minute is endless because the depression is so dark.
Join me in prayer for all of them? Thanks.
