    my brother Steve (an ex STAS seminarian himself, received all the Minor Orders) had a self-donated marrow transplant for his lymphoma, but it didn't work.  It was a very unpleasant and painful experience for him.  He regretted it later.

    Well, maybe there's something Providential about this. As a positive, I noticed my dad was wearing a cross pendant again at Christmas, so maybe the face of mortality is making him "relapse" back toward his childhood Catholic faith again. God-willing. He has an in-road back through me, he just needs to act on it.

  • So sorry DL. I watched my father battle cancer for two years. It’s like a roller coaster praying and hoping for that miracle of healing at each turn. 

    God is good

    Help of Christians, guard our land from assault or inward stain,

    “God, to whom angels submit themselves and who principalities and powers obey, was subject to Mary; and not only to Mary but Joseph also for Mary’s sake [….]. God obeyed a human creature; this is humility without precedent. A human creature commands God; it is sublime beyond measure.”
