My niece's fiancee was critically injured in a motorcycle accident in North Carolina yesterday.  If he survives he will have a very long recovery period.  His name is Jay and he is a wonderful, kind young man.  Would very much appreciate prayers for his recovery.  Thanks.
On the spiritual path somewhere between the Simpsons and St. Theophan the Recluse, but I still can't see the Springfield city limits sign yet.

Lord have mercy.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
