|As we approach the 79th Congress of the Romanian Orthodox Episcopate of America (ROEA) to be held in Chicago, it might be useful to review what happened at the 2010 Cleveland Congress.Soon after that Congress the ROEA put out a Press Release on Oct. 4, 2010 (a copy is on this website) and OCANews.org put out a commentary regarding the Congress on Oct. 8, 2010 (a copy is on this website). Then on Oct. 18, 2010 the ROEA put out a Statement of Clarification (a copy is on this website) denouncing that which was on the Internet regarding the Congress. Since then, little has been written about the 2010 Congress.|
PRAYER OF ST. EPHREM
O Lord and Master of my life,
leave me not with the spirit of laziness,
of despair, of domination, or idle words.
Rather, give me, your servant, the spirit of integrity,
of humility, of patience, and of love.
Thus, Lord, grant me the wisdom to see my own faults,
and not condemn my brother;
for You are blessed, now and forever. Amen.
Our Father, who are in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day
our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
