Please pray for Lawrence.  He is very angry and in depression and came quite close to attempting suicide this evening.  He really needs your prayers and I do appreciate it. 

Take pity and save him; raise him up from his sick-bed; for his strength within him hath failed, and he is entirely possessed by desperation.  O most pure Mother of God, heal him who is grievously illy, for thou art the help of Christians Amen.

I think the French may be on to something here.

There is no need for depression since there is confesion that offers forgiveness for every sin. I know that this is easy to be said than to be done. I heard that reading 2 chapters from Bible every day and praying in the morning and evening is a good antidote for depression. Hope this helps.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. ~Philippians 4:8; St Paul
