Pray for suicidal veteran
« on: November 08, 2009, 12:48:22 AM »
Please pray for a suicidal veteran I spoke with tonight.  He's in therapy and he's so bad his counselor is having trouble. This is someone who is hopeless and needs to find hope in something very soon.  Lord have mercy.

Lord, have mercy!
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

There is no more evident sign that anyone is a saint and of the number of the elect, than to see him leading a good life and at the same time a prey to desolation, suffering, and trials. - Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

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