Dear Alex,

It is so sad to hear of such a loss. The death of a child must be one of the hardest things to experience. Your family will be in my prayers tonight.

May the Most Holy Mother of God, who knows the pain of her Child's suffering and death, comfort the mother of the twins and welcome them into heaven.

Dear Friends,

I was at the funeral home last night.

The casket was open with the twins lying facing each other, little feet touching.

Each wore a neck cross as they had been baptised by the hospital Chaplain.

They were born March 13th. One lived two days, the other three days.

It was a privilege for me to pray in the presence of the relics of two little ones who are now in the Presence of their Heavenly Father and who truly make intercession for their parents and wider family.

Of such is the Kingdom of Heaven . . .

Alex

Dear Alex,

I am so sorry. May they rest in Peace and Light perpetual shine upon them. Their poor parents too are in my prayers.

Dear Friends,

Thank you, one and all.

Their father now faces a potentially life-threatening operation on Friday of this week and I ask your prayers for him - his grief does not make him a good candidate for the operation, yet he has put it off too long.

One other thing really struck me at the funeral home last night.

Even though the little ones lived for so short a time, there were family pictures of the parents and grandparents holding the little ones.

That brought home the fact that we must never take for granted the time we have with those we love.

Two or three days with such little ones are ultimately better than none.

Alex

Glory to Jesus Christ!
Glory to Him forever!

Dear Alex,

Memory Eternal!

I will pray for the two infants and the family. Dear sinless Lord and most holy and true Theotokos, comfort this family and increase the eternal beatitude of these two precious children in the heavenly kingdom of the triune God. Amen.

A sinner,

Adam


Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever!

Eternal memory to the little ones. Their place in the Kingdom is surely assured.

May the Lord grant His mercy and His peace to the parents, and to the family and loved ones. May their lives become both more peaceful and understanding of the tenuous nature of our human existence.

Eternal Memory.

Dear Revered Friends,

Unworthy as I am, and a cause of annoyance as I have frequently been to you in the past, I humbly thank you for the great Christian love that you show in your posts here, a love that sears my heart and mind and brings me to genuine tears.

I receive your Grace-filled words, prayers and assurances right now, on my knees before my computer screen and ask God to reward you all ever so richly, now and always.

Alex

Dear Alex,

May our Lord and the prayers of His Most Blessed Mother enfold the family with light and healing at this sorrowful time even as His precious little ones now live in the presence of His eternal glory.

With love in Christ,

Khrystyna
