LIBERA ME, Domine, Iesu Christe, ab omnibus iniquitatis meis et universis malis,
fac me tuis semper inhærere mandatis et a te numquam separari permittas. Amen.

A Suggestion . . .

As an act of Christian Charity, may I suggest that you might, at least occasionally, care to offer a prayer for two groups of people who obviously need prayers, but whom – I believe – are often forgotten : those who have no one to pray for them, and those who will not pray.

To pray for the first group is like giving water to a thirsty man in the desert; precious, and so much appreciated. To pray for the second may not only not be immediately appreciated, it might even – if they knew – bring down recrimination upon your head.

However, the day will come when they will thank you; and by then you may be very glad of their remembrance – so why not ‘cast your bread upon the waters’, and give them that assistance that they do not even realize they need.
