Please pray for the greviously ill Isaac Lambertson. He is suffering from a form of pancreatic cancer. Last week he was tonsured a monk by Metropolitan Hilarion after St. Joseph the Hymnographer.
Isaac (Fr. Joseph) has for decades toiled tirelessly translating our beautiful services from Church-Slavonic into English. Thanks to him our English-speaking faithful are able to enjoy Orthodox Church services for every day of the year and many other special services, akathists, etc. He is a graduate of Holy Trinity Seminary in Jordanville, NY and for many years has held the position of psalmist at our Synod cathedral in NYC, tending to the daily cycle of services there..
