A Friend's Mother
« on: October 24, 2009, 10:15:27 PM »
Mildred, the mother of a close friend, reposed on Thursday after a long and full life of 95 years.  Tough Norwegian stock, she was.

May the memory of the handmaiden of God, Mildred, be eternal!

Memory eternal. What a grand old age!

Lord, have mercy.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

May Mildred's Memory be Eternal!
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.

May the faithfully departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
"For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." - St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa contra gentiles, I, 14.
