I am posting some words from the book, Song of the Sparrow.  Meditate or pray on these words.  Look inside yourself.  Have you experienced this?


Late at night when all the sounds outside are quiet, the inner sounds sometimes clamor to be heard, and we toss and turn trying to still their demands.  It is always the same:  They win for a while and finally sleep comes – too late to bring that needed healing of mind and body.  


I reach out to you, O Lord,

And all I touch is my own emptiness,

Air and silence and the memory

That this kind of prayer never works for me.

When I am most in need,

Prayer never seems to help.

It only strengthens my own helplessness.

In your own way, In your own time

You will answer.  So once again I lean on

Patience.  I wait.  Always there is

This waiting,  this dread that I 

Won’t hold out.  But I do, and

That is perhaps Your answer.

We cannot stamp our feet or cry

And expect you to come running.

We only say, “Into your hands, O Lord.”

And there is peace, for you are faithful

If not prompt, and you will answer 

When you will answer.  Amen.  Alleluia.


I have experienced this, especially with my being ill the past couple of years.  I say, “Lord please heal me. Why am I going through this pain? Is there a purpose?  Must be but what is it?”

I wonder when is God going to answer.  Maybe He has answered but my mind is so occupied I haven’t noticed it yet.  Maybe God will reveal His answer in time when He knows I am ready.  As the saying goes, patience is a virtue.  I am trying to patiently wait, asking our Lord for the strength and patience to live in pain.  And wait for His answer.  Trusting that an answer will come in God’s time.

God bless you on this Holy Week.



Psalm 5

I had hoped to finish my first post in a series where I will explain Catholic beliefs to non-Catholics but I haven’t been feeling well the past few days.

TyroneCMalloy-220px-220x161(Via NewsBusters) Georgia-based abortionist Tyrone Cecil Malloy is headed for prison.

A judge sentenced Malloy to four years in prison and six years probation on two counts of Medicaid fraud. The judge will hold a restitution hearing at a later date to determine the exact amount of restitution Dr. Malloy will be ordered to pay the Georgia Department of Community Health.

Steven Ertelt of Lifenews.com insists this conviction has a national-media angle: Malloy’s abortion clinic sits in a building owned by Dr. Sharon Malone, the obstetrician and wife of Attorney General Eric Holder, or “The First Lady of Justice,” as they call her at Essence magazine.

If John Ashcroft’s wife owned a building with say, a crisis pregnancy center in it, trying to urge women not to have abortions, would  that be evaded by the liberal media? After a criminal conviction?

We're bitter clingers who support limited government, support our military and veterans, don't mind waving Old Glory, and telling you we love the USA. Are you with us?
