Javier) and France (Lourdes, Paris & Lisieux).  Out farewell dinner will be
in a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower in Paris. The brochure is now on-line,
along with a map and links to our hotels! The very reasonable price includes
transportation, luggage transfers, all admissions, guide, escort, all
breakfasts and dinners and even a packed lunch for the 1st Class train ride
from Lourdes to Paris. As always we'll celebrate daily Mass and pray the
Rosary when we're traveling. Our dinner on the last night will be served in
one of Altitude 95, a restaurant within the Eiffel Tower in Paris. For

"So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own.
Today's trouble is enough for today."  ~Matthew 6:34

Its best for us not to think of the Red Sea of difficulties that lies ahead.
We can be sure that when we come to that Red Sea, the waters will part and
we will be given all the power we need to face and overcome many
difficulties and meet what is in store for us with courage.  We can believe
that we will pass through that Red Sea to the promised land, the land of the
spirit where many souls meet in perfect comradeship.  We can believe that
when that time comes, we will be freed of influence of material things and
find peace.

.=: P R A Y E R   F O R   T H E   D A Y  :=.

I pray that I may face the future with courage.  I pray that I may be given
strength to face both life and death fearlessly.
