For the Handmaid of God LOUISE
« on: March 25, 2010, 03:53:32 PM »
Please remember in your prayers the Handmaid of God LOUISE who passed away from this life last week.  She was 89 years old and our next door neighbor while I was growing up.  She was a sweet elderly woman of whom I have fond memories even though we were not especially close.  She looked out for my siblings and I and made sure we weren't carrying on too much when my parents weren't home.

Please also remember her son Dennis who has taken care of his mother all his adult life.

Memory eternal.
As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Memory Eternal!

Lord, strengthen and have mercy on her son Dennis.
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.
—St. Isaac of Syria

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