Tomorrow is the anniversary of 9/11. I ask anyone who reads this to please take time out of your day and pray, especially the Rosary as Our Blessed Mother asked us to at Fatima. Pray the Rosary for Peace and for all Christians who are persecuted in Christ's name.
May all who have lost their lives in these times of terror and hate be remembered in prayer for the souls of the departed. Those who were faithful especially need our prayers, for all the souls of the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace. AMEN
The following excerpt was taken from the book: The Mass of Brother Michel, written by Michael Kent
Here after Mass, was now his chief joy. His time, not required elsewhere, he spent in the chapel, reluctant to leave, impatient to return. Here Love spoke to him, poured Its riches upon him, demanded his love, and received it in return. In this interchange the need for words had long since passed: his soul plunged into silence, as a diver into a deep sea, rising to the surface slowly, slowly, after a prolonged submersion so profound that all activity was stilled and even breath ceased. "Oh, mon pere," he cried to Father Andre, "I did not know that prayer could be such joy, I did not think that one could find such happiness on earth! Why do not more know of it? Why do so few pray?"
