    Prayer Request for the Peaceful Repose of Fr. Eugene Schellberg

    My "Uncle Gene" is expected to live less than two weeks.  He has aspiration pneumonia and is not eating or drinking.  He is my father's oldest brother and my absolute favorite uncle.  He's a lot like my dad only 50% more humor and a little less wisdom.

    Things go better with prayer -

    Today was the first time in nearly a year that I've been able to get back to some hint of my prayer rule. . . and for the first time in ages, my soul feels the warmth and love of the Holy Spirit in His comfort.  What do you notice as being better when you are able to pray consistently?

    Vespers and Great Vespers prayer services online.

    I am looking for the Vesper and Great Vesper prayer service that can be prayed when the priest is absent.  If any one could provide a link or knows of a prayer book that contains these services that I might purchase, I would be in your debt.  I am looking for the written word, not recordings...

    Starting to write again after seven years. . .

    When my husband and I were first married we got into a huge war over whether I would write or not.  He had no idea how much work  it was - and of course, the pay check doesn't come unless something sells.  So, I went to work (for a bi-weekly part time pay check) and dropped writing.   That was...

    Favorite Orthodox Prayers - and why

    Moderator, if this needs to be moved, please feel free.  I hope this becomes a help for those who are struggling in or with prayer.   These prayers have helped me to define what true humility is and how to love my enemy.  Both humility and loving my enemies are a complete struggle for me.  Both...

    Kollyva - what do the traditional ingredients represent or symbolize?

    Yesterday, I made Kollyva for my father's one year memorial.  My husband tried a bit of it, and asked me why it is made and eaten for memorials.  I could briefly explain the wheat, but past that, I am ignorant.  The recipe I have is a classic Greek recipe given to me by my sponser.  (Boiled...
