Why is it that their are people who cannot accept the magisterial pronouncements even before Vatican 2 on invincible ignorance? Urgh all they are doing is regurgitating the dogmatic pronouncements and ignoring the Church's own explanation!!!! AAARGH.
dear Br. JR,
I.ve just visited CAF after a long absence. Noticed
I missed to greet you in your BD. However please accept my
greetings even late Happy Birthday with Gods Blessings and my
sincere wishes. Please keep me and my family in your
prayers, I need it a lot in these days. Praying for you always.
Peace and Good.
I am glad I could give you a laugh, brother! Perhaps your founder was correct in saying that Perfect Joy consists in being rejected for Christ's sake... but I say Perfect Joy consists in generating a smile on a stranger's face, and making that stranger happy. Your litany of professor-saints is very helpful, and I shall give them full consideration. What more can I do but thank you, and wish you a happy-belated-birthday?
It is a blessed day indeed when I can see and know the happiness of a Franciscan brother! The Franciscans of Halifax are very joyous too, and do not hesitate to give me their embrace when they see me. Lovely order, gracious society!
Br. JR, I know you probably get this a lot but I just wanted to agree with many others that your posts are excellent and have actually inspired me to redouble my efforts of kindness toward others in my life
