Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

In Paradisum Gramma

My Gramma Haber died today, two years ago. I was just finishing an eight-day silent retreat and so I received the news.

May the angels lead you into Paradise;
May the martyrs receive you at your coming
and lead you to the holy city of Jerusalem.
May the choir of angels receive you,
and with Lazarus, who once was poor,
May you have eternal rest. Amen.

We love you Gramma, and we'll see ya soon. But not yet.
