Traveling out of the country for the first time.
« on: May 23, 2018, 02:29:08 PM »
If you have some time, please say a small prayer for this unworthy sinner and my girlfriend as we are making a trip together out of the country. I've never left America before.

Thanks.

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
