For our former priest
« on: March 07, 2007, 01:08:42 PM »
I was told that our retired priest, Fr John, is very ill, and perhaps dying.  Please pray for him, he is a very good man that gave 35 years to our church and even longer to the Lord!!!

May the Lord have mercy on him and his family!
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
