“Great and glorious God, my Lord Jesus Christ! I implore Thee to enlighten me and to disperse the darkness of my soul. Give me true faith, firm hope, and perfect charity. Grant me, O Lord, to know Thee so well that in all things I may act by Thy light and in accordance with Thy holy will. Amen.” [1]

– St. Francis of Assisi

Today’s Office of Readings feels like it was written just for me. Thank You, Lord.

I also want to thank a few readers who have e-mailed me with prayers and support. I OWE YOU, DEAR ONES, BIG TIME!! This morning, I was sent an answer to prayer — something I have been waiting for for a long, long time. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. My heart has been as light as a feather since then. Please keep praying, if I may be so bold as to ask for more. I happily offer mine for you and your intentions as well.
