Please pray for Shawn
« on: November 14, 2010, 11:03:22 PM »
Today after my family came home from my crismation, my son came inside from sitting out on the porch with his wife.  He said there was a man on the sidewalk asking for prayer.  His name is Shawn, he was very confused, somewhat paranoid, did not smell of alcohol, but was obviously homeless.  We prayed with him and for him for a long time, he sobbed repeatedly on my shoulder.  It was heart breaking to see him so mentally confused.  He went on his way. . . Please pray for him.
In His Mercy,

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.

"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.
