Please pray for my cousin

My cousin Julie will be undergoing open heart surgery to repair a congenital defect in a heart valve. She is in good health otherwise, but the problem with the valve has recently worsened enough to require surgery.

Julie is out of surgery and appears to be recovering well so far (praise God!).

Thank God for your cousin's health.

Jonathan, if I may ask, what is your take on the theological contribution of Patriarch Gregory II of Cyprus to the question of the Filioque? Do you detect a Patristic precedent for his formulation of the Spirit's eternal "shining forth" through the Son?

Also, according to Patr. Gregory, could there be any energetic manifestion of the Son through the Spirit? If not, why? What, indeed, does energetic 'procession,' as hypostatically specified, *mean*, if according to Palamas the Energies are common to all the Trinitarian Hypostases?
