Posted on the Feast of Saint Patrick, in belated observance of World Speech Day, and in earnest prayer for once-holy Ireland: “Have mercy upon the Irish people, o Lord… Move them to uphold the true dignity of motherhood, fatherhood, family, and humanity, according to the rational laws You wrote in our hearts and confirmed by Your commandments of love.” (From “Prayer for Ireland” at Writer’s Block)
“Moreover, you have endurance and have suffered for my name, and you have not grown weary. Yet I hold this against you: you have lost the love you had at first. Realize how far you have fallen. Repent, and do the works you did at first. Otherwise, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.” (Revelation 2:2-5, NAB, from the USCCB)
