Wounded Soldier
« on: September 16, 2007, 12:22:26 AM »
I just learned that the grandson of a parishioner was injured in Iraq---an IED took out his vehicle a few days ago.

The soldier has been wounded and has facial injuries, but is expected to survive.

Please pray for his strength during rehab and plastic surgeries, as well as for strength for his family and for all those giving him care.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

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

Lord, have mercy
"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 on all those suffering because of war, violence, terrorism, and bloodshed.
