Necessity knows no laws! Thus pain compels me to talk with You! The catastrophe that has come upon me obliges me to call the Physician, for I am sick! I beg for the Light for I lam blind! I look for Life, for I am dead! And who is that Physician, Life, and Light but You?! O Jesus Christ of Nazareth, have mercy on me!

You seek Jesus of Nazareth” (Mark 16:6)
"Death spread to all men" (Romans 5:12)
"Has passed from death into life" (John 5:24)

O Son of David, have mercy on me!” 

“He cried out, saying, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Luke 18:38”
