Thoughts of Mohammad Ali

Maybe my Parkinson’s is God’s way of reminding me what is important. It slowed me down and caused me to listen rather than talk.

Actually, people pay more attention to me now because I don’t talk as much.


Blessings of the Sacred Heart


Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also Mt. 6:21


When Jesus saw the crowds he felt sorry for them because they were harassed and dejected, like sheep without a shepherd.  Mt. 11:29


A humbled, contrite heart you will not spurn. Ps 50:19


Jesus said; You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind Mt 22: 22 37.
