jcassian:

Having cleansed yourself through fasting,You attained the understanding of wisdom,And from the desert fathers You learned the restraint of the passions.To this end through your prayers grant our flesh obedience to the spirit.For you are the teacher, O venerable John Cassian,Of all who in Christ praise your memory.

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Father,For you took up the Cross and followed Christ.By so doing you taught us to disregard the flesh for it passes awayBut to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal.Therefore your spirit, venerable John Cassian, rejoices with the angels.
 
As a venerable monk,You consecrated your life to God,And radiant with virtue, O John Cassian,You shine like the sun with the splendor of your divine teachings,Illumining ever the hearts of all who honor you.Entreat Christ earnestly in behalf of thoseWho praise you with fervent love.

If you look at what Russian media is saying you will know that: Putin, traveling by plane home from Brazil, passed along the exact same flight path as the Malaysian passenger jet less than one hour before it was hit - suggesting at least the theoretical possibility of a botched assassination attempt.

"The presidential plane and the Malaysian Boeing crossed paths at the exact point and at the same flight level," saidYekaterina Andreyeva, one of Russia’s most famous TV anchors. "The shape of the plane and the length are absolutely similar, and their color would appear almost identical at such a distance."

What could Russo-Ukrainian separatists ever possibly have to gain from shooting down a Maylasian passenger plane? What’s the motive?

I think a religion should be chose based on the spiritual feelings given to an individual from it, as well as because the religion makes the most sense to an individual. I don’t think it’s a good idea to choose a church or religion because it agrees with your personal ethics. Faith should not be solely based on reason, or on personal ethics. Faith is spiritual.

Faith should be based on the Truth though…

"God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
