Prayers for my Mom
« on: July 11, 2011, 02:15:01 AM »
Prayers for my Mom.  She goes to the cancer doctor on Monday.  She has bone marrow cancer and we hope for good news.
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.

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

Lord, have mercy and grant her healing!
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

Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

I once heard a monk say, “The person of prayer does not need to go any further than his own heart to find the source of all violence in the world.” -Fr. Stephen Freeman

Lord have mercy.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Thanks for all your prayers.  She made out great. We are very happy.
