Sasha, you have been so kind to me over the last few days. May I present this bouquet of flowers for your mother in her time of illness? What is her name, so that all of us Orthodox people can pray for her properly? I would like that before I go to church next, so that I can say her name as I light a candle for her needs.
Sasha says his mom’s name is Theodora, so we know for whom we are praying! She is a matushka on top of that, so don’t forget to add that to your prayer.
