For my friend Daniela
« on: April 10, 2016, 12:07:29 AM »
I'm shocked. This girl Daniela studied with me for a big part of my school life and all of a sudden she left us, at 19 or 20. It seems she had a lately discovered lymphoma. She was a Christian, as far as I remember, and left a caring father (already a widower) a younger sister and a loving boyfriend. I just keep thinking it could have been me, one of my sisters or my girlfriend/fiancée. We never know.


Lord, have mercy.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

May the Blessed Light shine Forth

May the Lord receive Daniela into his Kingdom, and have mercy on her family and friends.

Lord have mercy.
Christ turned the world upside down; and when the world was viewed from such a remarkable perspective, it suddenly made sense -- Fr Andrew Greeley

Lord, have mercy.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom
