Avoid giving offense to anyone...


by Edward Markham

He drew a circle that shut me out:
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in.

There's still time to peruse the scriptures before hearing them at Mass this weekend. For the texts and background materials and helpful hints for young worshipers, see this earlier post.

P.S. On several days this week I've been out of commission with "something that's going around" and just not up to posting. Hope to be back in swing very soon!



  1. Hope you feel better sooner rather than later!

  2. Drawing a circle that brings you rest, peace and ultimately health!


  3. I thought something was up and have been praying...hope your feeling better soon!

  4. I hope you are feeling better...I thought it was strange that you were not bloggin !!

    Take care and be well.

  5. I hope that you will feel much better very soon. I will say some prayers. It's no fun being sick especially if you don't have someone to make a fuss over you and bring you chicken soup in bed, etc.


Please THINK before you write
and PRAY before you think!
