      Dear Fr Deacon Basil,

      May God bless you and keep you from all harm. And for any failings (whatever
      they are, heck if I know), may you have peace of soul and tranquility of mind.

      This olde monk will bend his knees in prayer for you. Egads, I hate
      prostrations...wake me up if I fall asleep on the floor after the first one.

      The Holy Unmercenaries I am sure, do more than I can in our behalf. And it
      is their intercessions that I shall ask. My prayers are uncertain, theirs
      are not.

      And ya know what? Don't forget to be happy and have a good laugh every now
      and then! Does wonders. Internet debates can get really oppressive, and
      draining; too bad we don't have an on-going thread of Funny Stories of
      in-Church hilarity.

      Heh heh, I can tell you lots of wonderful Church Humour if you need some
      impetus!

      Like the day our reader set his hair on fire during the Prophesies at
      Vespers. It was spectacular!

      Asking your prayers,

      In Christ,
      John, monk

          Dear All

          My operation scheduled for 12 December 2001 is now rescheduled for the 18th
          - St Savva of Jerusalem (Monday) - on Sunday
          The Greatmartyr saint Barbara will see me off to hospital and I hope St
          Nicholas the Wonderworker will allow me
          to open my eyes on his Feastday and to glorify God again.

          Dear Moderator please unsubscribe me - otherwise my email bin will be
          too full on my return to work.

          Please note that for some technical reason I have been doubled up on some
          lists.

          Thank you

          Asking for your continuing prayers.
