the power to assist us in all cases
In the year of St. Joseph, may he intercede for us with Christ as we have more need of him in all things than ever before. Pray for our country. Pray for those who have protected us who are now under attack. Soon those who may not have understood will come to realize how much we have been protected from the forces who now come against us. Ora Pro Nobis.
By G.K. Chesterton
If the stars fell; night’s nameless dreams
Of bliss and blasphemy came true,
If skies were green and snow were gold,
And you loved me as I love you;
O long light hands and curled brown hair,
And eyes where sits a naked soul;
Dare I even then draw near and burn
My fingers in the aureole?
Yes, in the one wise foolish hour
God gives this strange strength to a man.
He can demand, though not deserve,
Where ask he cannot, seize he can.
But once the blood’s wild wedding o’er,
Were not dread his, half dark desire,
To see the Christ-child in the cot,
The Virgin Mary by the fire?
