An Irish Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte friend and rover ...
Wherever you come from and whosoever you may be.
That's an Irish greeting and it means

you are welcome
a thousand times over.

Sometimes, I have no desire to pray ...

From "Wounded By Love" by Elder Porfyrios:


"Many people ask me to pray for their relatives who suffer. And I do pray and I am moved and impelled by the love of the person who asks me to do so, because I see him or her suffer for his or her relative who is in trouble. This way I can make their pain my own. However, sometimes they disappoint me, and I have no desire to pray for them ... ... What can I say to him [them]? Whatever I tell him [them], he will think I am scolding him for no reason, as he will not understand my point."
