For the repose of the soul of Eddie
« on: October 26, 2011, 01:24:15 AM »
This old man at my Church passed away today.  He was trying to catch a fishing rod he accidentally dropped, fell, and hit his head.

I'm sure his family is very torn.  Our parish will be, too.  Once a drunk man stumbled into pre-sanctified liturgy and wouldn't leave.  Eddie chased him down the block.  Never have I seen an 80-something man run so fast.

Please pray for him.

I know a secret about a former Supreme Court Justice.  Can you guess what it is?

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

May his Memory be Eternal!
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.

“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” +Luke 6:27-29
