         A CHANGE
I was notified by Gary at Pentecost Tours that American Airlines contacted
him to tell him they are no longer flying from Rome to Chicago on the Friday
we return. We're in the process of making adjustments.  A decision had to be
made as to add or subtract a day from the trip.  The schedule was already
tight, so we decided to add a day.  That would give us either a full day in
Rome or 1/2 day more in Sorrento and 1/2 day in Rome.  I'll let you know
when it's on-line. Gary is dealing with hotels in Italy and will try to firm
things up on Monday.  I'll let you know when the new brochure is on-line. 

We'll visit Southern Italy, Assisi, Rome and the Vatican from 10-21 November
2008.  The original brochure is available in Church or on-line.  Just follow
the link from: www.frpat.com

St. Hilary of Arles (400-449) 
It's been said that youth is wasted on the young. In some ways, that was
true for today's saint. 
Born in France in the early fifth century, Hilary came from an aristocratic
family. In the course of his education he encountered his relative,
Honoratus, who encouraged the young man to join him in the monastic life.
Hilary did so. He continued to follow in the footsteps of Honoratus as
bishop. Hilary was only 29 when he was chosen bishop of Arles.

When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And
when Paul laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they
spoke in tongues and prophesied. Altogether there were about twelve men.
~Acts 19:1-8

But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so
that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but
take courage, I have conquered the world." ~John 16:29-33

The power of the Holy Spirit is *awesome!*  The Spirit empowers us to do
things that are incredible, and far beyond our imagination. But along with
using the power of the Holy Spirit comes trouble in this world.  Still,
Jesus reminds us that we are not alone, and that He has conquered the world.

I pray that I may earnestly prepare myself to receive the fullness of the
Holy Spirit.  I pray that I may fearlessly put the gifts of the Spirit to
use, and know the Lord's presence with me today and always!

and willingness to stand up for life. We pray for one another, for those who
have asked our prayers and for those who need our prayers the most. Have a
good day!
