Please pray for my dear friend who is in hospital.

I arrived in NZ and phoned my oldest and dearest friend to discover that she had been admitted to hospital that morning with chest pains. She is still in hospital awaiting an angiogramme sometime between today and Thursday. Please pray for Olwyn.
I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

Holy Unmercinaries and Wonderworkers, visit our infirmities. Freely you have received, freely give.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

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.

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Lord have mercy.
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
