Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Prayers needed for a little girl

Update: News has not improved, the tumor is malignent and is spreading rapidly. They cannot operate because the tumor is so large and she is so small so they are trying to combat it with medication and some radiation in an effort to reduce the tumor's size so they can operate. Say a prayer for this family, not only for healing but also that their faith may be increased.

Prayer warriors - please add a little girl named Flavia to your prayer lists. She is 3 years old, and the daughter of my Italian language professor from when I studied in Rome a couple of years ago (at that time she was just born and he couldn't stop talking about her - definitely daddy's girl!). Word has come from Rome that doctors have found a tumor on her hip that they believe to be cancerous.

Please keep little Flavia and her family in your prayers this week! Perhaps by praying a novena to God through the intercession of St. Peregrine?
