Back Home With Gratitude

Dear Beloved Readers: I thank God that I have come back home after about a month’s stay in the hospital and rehab facility.  As I recover from this peril,  I am filled with overwhelming gratitude to God for his mercy.  I am thankful also for your prayers and the prayers of so many who lifted me up and placed me in the arms of our gracious God.  I join in prayers for all who are suffering from this scourge and that by the mercy of God this time of trial will end according to His good will.  May the Lord watch over you as the Word of grace and truth in Christ nourishes us day by day.  With thanksgiving in Christ, Fr. Basil
