Departed Parishioner
« on: July 16, 2017, 09:20:04 PM »
Please pray for a fellow parishioner who fell asleep in the Lord on Friday.  He was in his 80’s but finally succumbed to cancer.  We never had long conversations, but we had a lot of short ones.  Sometimes he would just give a smile “Hello.”  I will miss him.  He is survived by his wife, kids, and grandchildren.

Quote
But it had not been in Tess's power - nor is it in anybody's power - to feel the whole truth of golden opinions while it is possible to profit by them. She - and how many more - might have ironically said to God with Saint Augustine, "Thou hast counselled a better course than thou hast permitted."
Thomas Hardy, Tess of the D'Urbervilles

Memory 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.
—St. Isaac of Syria
