I had mailed them to her at different times.
When I saw the above and how she marked the part about having no health and of life ebbing away, I realized that somehow she knew, recognized, what was happening to her.
She marked that one (above) too. I will keep those there. What a treasure I have in this. I am greatly comforted.
I read this Akathist through tonight, trying to learn a little of it by heart, the message of it, the beauty, the depth. And I realized that Larissa had given me, in this, part of what I need for my writing project. (Now I am trying to date it, I am guessing 1960s?). It's really wonderful. It really captures all of life and all situations of people who need prayers...
Psalms to pray for Lent and for vespers marked out... She once told me in church, as we were leaving, that she prayed vespers at home...
