For a dear departed friend
« on: August 12, 2017, 09:59:15 AM »
Please could you pray for the soul of Michelle, who departed this life this morning. She had had cancer for a year and suffered greatly, but kept her faith in Christ. Also those left behind, including her husband Andy and their 5 children. Thank you.

Memory Eternal! Lord have mercy on your departed servant.
"The business of the Christian is nothing else than to be ever preparing for death (μελεπᾷν ἀποθνήσκειν)."

— Saint Irenaeus of Lyons, Fragment XI

Modernist thinking and being consists of nothing but uncritical acceptance.

Lord, have mercy.
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.
