    My dear friend, Pammy, lost her battle with liver disease today. She was taking care of her husband (who is in a wheelchair), her adult kids, her grandkids, and umpteen other people who needed anything. Before she got sick, she dreamed of moving to Ireland to get away from the Oh-Bamas! I don't think she even rested while in hospice care. May she rest now in the arms of her Savior. Please say a prayer for her soul and for her sweet husband, that he can endure the loss.

    My son has been very troubled, as he believes, by the presence and attack of evil spirits. (I am not sure myself what is psychological and what is supernatural.) Next week he is seeing a priest who seems like a calm, rational, measured man, for a deliverance session. The priest does think that my son is afflicted by spirits. My son's anxiety level is higher and he feels like he has come under greater attack. I am asking on his behalf, that you pray for him for the next seven days, until he sees the priest. I also ask that...

    This may be a bad place or time, but I'll ask anyway. Tomorrow is a big deal for me. I'm not quite back up to 110 pounds yet, but I'll go with what I've got.

If everything goes right tomorrow, I'll begin my HEME/ONC treatment for the lung cancers and other stuff that I have. I've been made to understand that this is even rougher...

In spite of an overwhelming outcry of alarm from around the world, our city leaders will allow this outrage to take place in a publicly supported facility. They will not accede to the reasonable requests of local citizens to stop this outright mockery of the Catholic Mass nor the reasonable concerns of so many that this satanic ritual invokes powers of evil and invites them into...
