“And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary his mother: Behold this child is set for the fall, and for the resurrection of many in Israel, and for a sign which shall be contradicted; And thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that, out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed.”
--Saint Luke 2:34-35
Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.
Life is short, and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are traveling the dark journey with us. Oh, be swift to love; make haste to be kind!
[In loving memory of my friend, Tricia (Patricia) Schneider, who departed this world yesterday. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her; may her soul rest in peace, and may God grant us the grace to happily meet again in Heaven.]
