It's shaping up to be a great Pilgrimage . to Portugal (Lisbon, Santerem,
Fatima), Spain (Alba de Tormes, Avila, Segovia, Burgos, Loyola, Pamplona &
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. For complete details, follow the link from:

New Internet Explorer - Beta

Many folks who downloaded recent security updates report that Internet
Explorer isn't working like it used to.  For one thing, it's necessary to
type http://www. before the URL you seek.  I found the perfect solution
today.  I downloaded the Beta version of Internet Explorer 7.  It has some
great improvements, including the ability to have several web pages open at
the same time and to access them by tabs on the top of the browser window.
I realize that many prefer Opera, Netscape, Mozilla Firefox or another
browser, but for IE users, this could be a good fix.  It can be downloaded

"O God, do not be far from me; O my God, make haste to help me!" ~Psalm

In material things, we can really on our own wisdom and that of others.  In
spiritual things, we need not rely so much on our own wisdom as on God's
guidance.  In dealing with personalities, it is a mistake to step out too
much on our own.  We can try to be guided by God in all human relationships.
We cannot accomplish much of value in dealing with people until God knows we
are ready.  We alone do not have the power or wisdom to put things right
between people.  We can rely on God to help us in these vital matters.

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

I pray that I may rely on God in dealing with people's problems.  I pray
that I may try to follow God's guidance in all personal relationships.
