Pope recovering after fall
« on: July 18, 2009, 12:50:50 AM »
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Lord, have mercy on your servant.

Bless him.  At his age breaks can take time to heal.  Imagine the pain and still celebrated the Liturgy before going to the hospital.  Too many of our people refuse to come to Divine Liturgy if they have a headache.  I can imagine the discomfort he must have been in...recently I had a kidney stone attack during a past Saturday night and managed to make it to Sunday Liturgy, tho I thought I wouldn't make it thru the service.  As if the pain in the side wasn't bad enough, my stomach make making flip-flops.  Thank God I was able to keep the Gifts down without any problems.  Actually, I believe the Gifts helped me to pass the stone later that afternoon without any pain.  Thanks be to God for all things!

Lord have mercy on Our Holy Father. Amen.
