I am praying to be healed. I've been in near constant pain since April. How I wish I could do more instead of lie in bed and pray. Although we like to live by the rule of St. Benedict: ora et labora, sometimes I have to remind myself what St. John Bosco said, ora est labora. It is so easy to forget that your worth does not lie in what you can do but just in the fact that you are precious to God just as you are. I was especially heartened to read this reflection on Moses' life by Msgr. Charles Pope.
Here are some beautiful photos of the Shenandoah valley and Busch Gardens. But I'm happy to have everybody at home.
