Being over seventy is like being engaged in a war. All our friends are going or gone and we survive amongst the dead and the dying as on a battlefield.

Take pains to refrain from sharp words. Pardon one another so that later on you will not remember the injury.
The recollection of an injury is itself wrong. It adds to our anger, nurtures our sins, and hates what is good.
It is a rusty arrow and poison for the soul. It puts all virtue to flight.

This makes me think of the differences.. between Christian conversation and its antithesis. Constant conflict, vice, argument, tearing at one another... like sick animals.. vain curiosity.. idle talk..

But in Christian conversation.. virtue.. grace.. peace.. charity.. prudence.. periods of silence.. care.. thoughtfulness.. lowering of oneself.. submission the Lord and His people... depth in a few words.. simplicity..

Hmm.. More to think on.. To truly get more ahold of the contrast..

Kyrie eleison..

God willing, that is not something you need to remember for a long, long time. Grin

When you say " Christian conversation", do you mean the ideal or what actually happens? Smiley

As for me, I've been told I'm very passionate in debate, over the years I've tried to express my affection for whomever I've debated after we finished our arguments, so as not to leave the impression that it's personal, the problem is sometimes it is personal, and there are times I walk away feeling wounded and the more I dwell upon it the further I get away from,"Do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you"etc. and the more insecure I become. It is poison for the soul, and it is something I need to be aware of. Thank you Saint Francis

10 more years to go, and it's all coming true, my prayers for the deceased seem to grow longer month to month.

True George !!( What's Haji?)  I feel sad when I see my parents and in-laws in their seventies and already losing their parents first and then their cousins, brothers, sisters etc....  I imagine how they feel to know that they could be next. An eye opener for me spiritually speaking. One day I will be in their situation.

God speaks in the silence of the heart, and we listen. And then we speak to God from the fullness of our heart, and God listens. And this listening and this speaking is what prayer is meant to be....

Yes when I pray for them I can see their faces in my mind and it reminds me what they gave to me and how much I miss them and long to be with them again.
The nickname Haji was given to me about 45 years ago by elderly woman in our neighborhood, when I started using the computer and they asked for a username I remembered it, I believe she meant it to mean "Pilgrim", I've been asked about it so many times, think it's time to retire it.

The prayer most pleasing to God is that made for others and particularly for the poor souls.
Pray for them, if you want your prayers to bring high interest.

Whoever is near us and needing us must be our ''neighbor''; it does not matter whether he is
related to us or not, whether he is morally worthy of our help or not. The love of Christ knows no limits.
It never ends; it does not shrink from ugliness and filth.

Whenever anything disagreeable or displeasing happens to you, remember Christ crucified and be silent.

I was reading about the French Revolution and The Martyrs of Compiegne and the Discalced Carmelites and came upon this quote from Sister Saint Eugenie of the Daughters of Wisdom.

"Enough, gentlemen, my last word is this: The guillotine seems set up for good. Take me there. An oath against my conscience you will never get from me."
Sister Saint Eugenie

This is the church I love
Guardian angel pray for me.
