Parishioner in serious accident
« on: January 21, 2010, 04:38:54 PM »
Please pray for Michael, who was involved in a 4-vehicle accident yesterday.  He is in serious condition, but stable.  He's one of our most consistent volunteers here at the Church.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

"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.

Lord, have mercy on Your servant Michael. Give him comfort and strength, and forgive him any sins he may have committed in thought, word, or deed.

Lord have mercy on the work of Your Hands.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
