Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

3 From Padre Pio

About Padre Pio: Francesco Forgione, later known as Padre Pio, (May 25, 1887September 23, 1968), canonized as Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, was an Italian Roman Catholic Capuchin priest who is now venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church. He was given the name Pio when he joined the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin, and was popularly known as Padre Pio after his ordination to the priesthood. He suffered the stigmata.
1. "Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer."

2. "Often place your confidence in Divine Providence and be assured that sooner Heaven and earth shall pass away than that the Lord neglect to protect you. "

3. "Do not fear, Jesus is more powerful than all Hell. At the invocation of His Name every knee in Heaven, on earth and in hell must bend before Jesus; this is the consolation of the good and terror of the evil ones."


Dedicated to the little congregation at Christ The King Chapel (Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters) this morning, whose needs are known to the Father.

After a disappointing doctor's visit for my daughter, who is both one of the best gifts my our Lord has given me and a share in his cross with her special needs, these words from Padre Pio are so comforting. Thank you for sharing them with me.

I pray God gives you comfort and healing, and lights your path.

Maxima debetur puero reverentia. (We owe the greatest respect to a child.)

Special needs children do bring special gifts, as you well know...
