  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

It's a while away here, but it's next weekend in Finland...

    ... and not a day to early here....

    I am sorry for having caused you all pain, sadness and anger!

    Please forgive me a sinner!

    :bow:

    Then for some pearls...

    "The way of humility is this: self-control, prayer, and thinking yourself inferior to all creatures."
    —Abba Tithoes

    :sorry: (I need to work on that one... )

    "Someone who bears a grudge while he prays is like a person who sows in the sea and expects to reap a harvest."
    —St. Isaac The Syrian

    "A man who is angry, even if he were to raise the dead, is not acceptable to God."
    From Abba Agathon (The Sayings of the Desert Fathers)

    "I have often repented of having spoken, but never of having been silent."
    From Abba Arsenius (Sayings of the Desert Fathers)
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Does the Church follow the Western calendar for Lent every year?

    I know of no pain, sadness, or anger that you have caused me. :hug:

    But having said that, I still wish to say...

    God forgives and I forgive. Please forgive me -- a sinner!
    :bow:

    Thank you for these.
    Perhaps I should not feel this way, but I know sometimes I do regret having been silent.
    And so I go ahead and post this.
