Baby on the way.

Amidst all the problems of the past weeks there are a few things which keep me going. The first is that the Church will always prevail.
Jesus saith to them: But whom do you say that I am?
Simon Peter answered and said: 'Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God'
And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven.
And I say to thee: That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church. And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
And this, dear readers, is the proof of the fact that the church will always prevail. For Christ said so to Peter. The Church will always come under attack from the Devil, for the church is the Body of Christ, the Devil hates the Church. But, as Christ said 'hell shall not prevail against it'.

The second thing keeping me going is that fact that pretty soon (6 days away) the newest member of the family is expected to arrive. That's right, Catholic Student is to become an uncle. The names are (for a boy) Finn, and (for a girl) Roxanne.

I ask your prayers for; (1) better names, and (2) that the baby may be healthy.

As yet my brother is adamant that his child will not be baptised... I also ask your prayers that the Lord will bring him (my brother) back to the Church.

St Peter - pray for us.

In Domino.
