Prayers Needed for Orthodox Priest


#1

Hello Eastern Brothers :slight_smile:

A friend of an Orthodox friend of mine is a Greek Orthodox priest. His marriage is in serious crisis and has had to leave his post as Pastor in order to deal with it. They have four children, ages 10 and younger. Please pray for the family, and especially for this priest, as he is very much responsible for this crisis.

I’ll leave it as that, but if you would like more details feel free to PM me.

Thanks :gopray:

Prayers for this presbyter and his family.

Jadesfire,

I would ask that you not offer any details of this matter to anyone via pm or otherwise, as I see no useful purpose to doing so, other than infringing on private matters that will not be resolved by making scandal more known.

I agree with the good moderator, Joe Monahan. Please keep the details between the married couple and whomever they trust to involve.

Prayers for this family.

Oh my!

Although I had absolutely no intention of giving away any significant details about the incident (names, location, etc) that would cause scandal, looking back on my post, I’m embarressed by my own impropriety in the way I spoke about this poor man. My apologies to anyone offended. :o:o:o

Please keep praying :gopray:
