    Good morning, all,

    horgan,
    Thank you for St. Richard of Chichester's Day by Day prayer and Mahatma Ghandi's reflection on prayer.

    Dr. John,
    Thank you for sharing MAN THOU SHALT NOT KILL. Have you contacted a pro-life organization in your area? You might enjoy joining one of the different pro-life organizations and participating in their activities.

    sheilakathy,
    Your poem MISSING MY COMPUTER touches a nerve with me, too. I have finally arranged a daily internet routine. In this hot weather we have here, I turn off my computer and unplug the DSL modem when I finish my routine, because there's no airconditioning (that's another story).

    God loves all of you,
    Don

    A Reflection....Mahatma Gandhi..............................I am neither a man of letters nor of science but I humbly claim to be a man of prayer. It is prayer that has saved my life.Without it,I would have lost my reason long ago. If I did not lose my peace of soul,in the midst of my many trials,it is because of the peace that came to me through prayer.One can live several days without food,but not without prayer. Prayer is the key to each morning and the lock to each evening.It is a sacred alliance between God and us.It delivers us fom the clutches of the price of darkness.We have to chose,eitther to ally ourselves with the forces of evil or the forces of good. Let everyone try this experience and they will find that daily prayer will add something new to ttheir lives,something which can not be found elsewhere. This is my sacred teaching..

    MISSING MY COMPUTER

    My dear computer
    how I miss you
    you are so much a part of me
    this is so hard to do

    You battle with the Lord
    for my every attention
    you play unfairly
    causing confusion

    I must recall
    I don't need you to reach Him
    He is the center of my life, not you!
    I need to be released from your unruly whim

    I need to spend more time in prayer
    less time online with you
    He is my Leader, my Saviour, my Love
    He tells me what He wants me to do

    I need to listen more
    I need to obey
    I need to love Him more
    you need to stay away!

    Help me, Lord, to be more with You
    help me not to neglect You too
    help me realize You are always there
    help me to see You in all I do.

    Man, Thou Shalt Not Kill!

    Each human child by God is made
    In His image own, with love, care;
    To take a life is God-forbade,
    No human being shall then dare!

    Each human child is called by name,
    While growing in the womb by God;
    To murder is a sin and shame
    Inviting Maker’s just rod!

    The law of lands may change with time,
    But lives God-made must stay untouched;
    To kill is both a sin and crime,
    And cannot be ignored or hushed!

    The curse of God shall be upon
    The man/ woman who kill the child;
    The pleas of revenge of unborn
    Will bring a punishment, not mild!

    To urge someone to kill is just
    The work of Satan with much plan;
    Such human beings are accursed:
    Let all know this – man or woman!

    So, spare the life within the womb;
    Let every life see world God-made;
    The place of birth can’t turn a tomb;
    Without blooming, no bud may fade!

    ‘Abortion is a mortal sin and heinous crime!’

    I have come across the work of Henry Vaughan 1622-1695 and his poem "I saw eterniity the other night" I saw eternity the other night,Like a great ring of pure and endless light,All calm as it was bright. And round beneath it,Time in hours,days,years Driven by the spheres Like a vast shadow moved;in which the world And all her train were hurled The doting lover in his quaintest strain Did here complain;Near him,his lute,his fancy and his flights Wit's sour delights With gloves and knots,the silly snares of pleasure.Yet his dear treasure All scattered lay,while he his eyes did pour upon a flow'r. He is one of the Major metaphysical poets and the poem "Peace" is demonstrative of his search for a personal relationship with God. the poem reads: "My soul,there is a country Far beyond the stars,Where stands a winged sentry All skilful in the wars:There above noise and danger Sweet Peace sits crown'd with smiles. And one,born i n a manager Commands the beauteous files.He is thy gracious friend, And - O my soul,awake! 2.Did in pure love descend to die here for thy sake,If t thou canst get but thither,There grows the flower of peace. The rose that can not wither Thy fortress,and thy ease.Leave then thy foolish ranges;For none can thee secure But one who never changes - Thy God,thy life.thy cure."

    Don - I'm so glad that you loved the hymn!! Thank you for sharing that St. Patrick is your patron saint and his name is your confirmation name! That's great!

    GKCT - I was moved by your wonderful poem! I like how you said that our strong faith will make us holy and lead us to salvation! That encouraged me to stay strong in my faith! Thank you for sharing! Perfect for Trinity Sunday!
