For My Brother Seminarian
« on: December 23, 2005, 01:17:53 PM »
When it rains it pours....

I have also learned that a fellow seminarian at Holy Cross has suffered a mild heart attack. He has apparently recovered, but he is recovering from an operation to implant several stents. He just started his program this fall.

Please pray for him, his wife, and their children. My understanding is that he is likely to recover, but that it stands to reason he may be wondering if he should still continue this program, along with other questions he must be asking. Thanks!

"What people say when they speak on their own account is repellent and murksome, for their words do not come from the living spring of the Spirit, but are spawned from the morass of their own heart, a bog infested with the leeches, snakes and frogs of desire, delusion and dissipation; the water of their knowledge is evil-smelling, turbid and torpid, sickening to those who drink it and filling them with nausea and disgust."
