Wisdom from St. Francis

Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received--only what you gave given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage.

On Memorial Day, let us pray to the Prince of Peace:

-- for the repose of the souls of all soldiers and civilians who have died in wars

--for the consolation of their loved ones

--for healing and justice for veterans and others who have been physically and emotionally wounded in war

-- for the just and peaceful resolution of all present and future conflicts

Holy Godde,
Holy and Mighty,
Holy Immortal One,
Have mercy upon us.

Please pray for the couple across the hall from us. My husband saw the man drunk and heard his wife crying tonight, and the police are there now because other neighbors reported hearing him say "I have a gun." It's sad and scary, especially because it's so close to our kids and because they have one who is about two.
