  A Note from  Paula in H/whistle 

        "When Pope Francis said Mass recently in Havana's Revolution Square, there are two prophecies that will have come true thanks in part to Francis' secret diplomacy.

         Pope John Paul's prophecy in 1998 was that "Cuba will open itself to the world and the world will open itself to Cuba."

         And one attributed to Fidel Castro in 1973 was that "The United States will sit down and talk with us when it has a black president and the world has a Latin American Pope."

Thoughts for the week

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is ‘Thank You,’ it will be enough.  Meister Eckhart German Mystic.

Guardian Angel Prayer

Angel of God, My guardian dear, To Whom His Love, commits me here, Every this day, Be at my side, To light and guard, To rule and guide. Amen.

You Never Passed Me By

I Love You my lord, You make me smile when I feel like crying.

You wipe away each tear from my eyes when I’m feeling down.

You give me strength and hope, when I feel Your loving arms around me, the tenderness of your touch, fills my heart with a love I never knew.

I love You my Lord, this new-found love is beyond imagination.

I just cannot find the words to express the way I feel within me.

It is so wonderful to know that You are always by my side And I shall never forget that it was for me and all Your children that You died. 

Jesus Christ; You are the king on high.

You are the only one, on whom I can rely And during those times when I have let You down

O, Lord Jesus never once did You ever pass me by.

Gordon Bell.
