For the repose of the soul of my Grandmother
« on: May 24, 2010, 08:40:17 AM »
Dear friends,

Last night, my maternal grandmother Helen passed away at the age of 92. She was surrounded by her daughters, and did not die alone.

Please pray for her soul, and for the comforting of her children; John, Virginia, and Eva.

Thank you,

Maureen

May her memory be eternal.

Lord have mercy on her loved ones and ease their grief.
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.

Thank you all for your prayers. The funeral went well, and I know my Grandmother is now in heaven with Christ and all His saints.

Thanks again!

Memory Eternal!  I lost my grandmother who was 95 last December.  She and I were very close so I know what your going through. 

Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

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