A friend of mine, James, has recently been tonsured to a riasophore monk.

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

Lord, give him strength to fight.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Many years.
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.
