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

Another chance to love some people

Dom over at Bettnet beat me to the punch and posted up
this novena to Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati on behalf of a friend of mine, Peter Braam, and three of his friends who are all suffering, or likely suffering, from cancer.

Peter just found out that a lump on his neck is likely to be lymphoma, but is waiting to hear final biopsy results. Peter has a huge devotion to Bl. Pier Giorgio, in fact it is in large part thanks to Peter's efforts that Frassati Societies have sprung up in Denver and, through his sister, here in the Cities). Therefore, it is fitting that he has asked for us to pray a novena to Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati for healing and strength for these four people, in accord with God's will for them. Please join us - if you can still do it today (or "catch up" with us) we will end on April 6th, which happens to be Bl. Pier Giorgio's birthday, fittingly!
