Reign of Christ

Crown him the Son of God, before the worlds began,
And you who tread where he hath trod, crown him the Son of man;
Who every grief hath known that wrings the human breast,
And takes and bears them for his own, that all in him may rest.

Ongoing prayers for the IC jurisdiction I have been working with....God did a miracle in converting the second in command/head of the canon law division and he is going to entertain motions by a good priest still in the group for deposition of the presiding bishop and other colluders as well as restoring canonical voting process and invalidating votes that did not follow it. Which will probably lead to his own dismissal and he is peaceful about that if, in his words, it is the penaance God requires. Wow.

Anyway I have been asked by the priest making the motions to serve as his advocate so I can team with him to prepare briefs and also present our case and question witnesses. Feeling a little out of my depth time and skill wise....and, again, praying for the purification of my own heart from freedom from any desires for revenge or humiliation of the guilty...and that this can somehow be an opening toward of true healing as well as conversion for the PB and not just punishment...especially because I see much my pre-diagnosis self in him so clearly. My teammate and I are going to meet Saturday after Thanksgiving to work on our brief which is due by fourteen days from yesterday. Then the hearing will happen within fourteen days from filing, by teleconference as people are so scattered.

Thank you very much for all the prayer support on this so far....God keeps doing miracles. And please pray with me for those of us preparing and arguing the case on both sides, the judge, the witnesses, and those accused especially the PB who is such a gifted and beloved man but desperately wounded and wounding right now.
