We just found out this morning that my grandfather is not expected to last through the day. Please pray.

So, sorry.  May his memory be eternal.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

O Lord have mercy. May he rest in peace.

My thoughts are with you.
I denounce all the inappropriate things I said to any member on this forum prior to 12/Jan/2016, 9:46pm.   

I'm anti-racism, anti-homophobia, anti-nazism, anti-extremism, anti-Christophobia, anti-anti semitism, anti-extreme secularism and very anti-anti Catholic.

May his memory be eternal.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai
Writings from the Philokalia: On Prayer of the Heart,
Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.
