My periodic pause

This post will be my last for a few weeks. Lots on my plate. I must set aside my personal writing. I plan to restart the second week of October. Sign up at the top right if you want to be notified of new posts –>

As ever, I am INCREDIBLY grateful for those who read here, comment here. I love the comments immensely. I am blessed.

I will end with a song to my wife, cause of my joy. It blends well with these words of St. John Chrysostom, suggested for young husbands to say to their wives (which the Catechism even quotes, recommending the same!):

I have taken you in my arms, and I love you,
and I prefer you to my life itself.
For the present life is nothing,
and my most ardent dream
is to spend it with you in such a way
that we may be assured of not being separated
in the life reserved for us.
I place your love above all things,
and nothing would be more
bitter or painful to me
than to be of a different mind than you.

    Beautiful…..do you think the Turtles were consulted for the Catechism section on marriage? I suspect, perhaps so. All the best to Patricia.
