This is in response to the recent suicide bombings in Moscow. I don't know how many Russians are members here, but wanted to say my prayers are with you; my heart hurts for your loss.

In reading Fr. Seraphim Rose's biography, my love of Russia grows and I very much appreciate the spiritual essence of Orthodoxy that Russia has given to America...

O Heavenly Father, we praise Your holy name and ask Your mercy upon our brothers and sisters in Russia. Bless those who weep, comfort those who mourn and may Your blessed Resurrection give hope to hurting hearts and illumine darkened souls... in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, Amen.

Christ is Risen!

Members may like to know that Russian embassies are grateful for messages (by email or whatever) of condolence and sympathy. The Russian embassy in London has been flooded with messages.

Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered, and let those who hate Him flee from before His face. As smoke vanisheth, so let them vanish.

Lord save those who fear Thee.
