A prayer from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels:
When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill, when the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sign,When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest, if you must, but don’t quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As everyone of us sometime learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don’t give up though the pace seems slow-You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out- The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit- It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Ah, you are beautiful, my beloved, ah, you are beautiful!
Your eyes are doves behind your veil. Your hair is like of goats streaming down the mountains of Gildead.
Your teeth are like a flock of ewes to be shorn, which come up from the washing, All of them big with twins, none of them thin and barren.
Your lips are like a scarlet strand; your mouth lovely. Your cheek is like a half-pome-granate behind your veil.
Your neck is like David’s tower girt with battlements; A thousand bucklers hang upon it, all the shields of valiant men.
Your breast are like twin fawns, the young of a gazelle that browse among the lilies.
Until the day breathes cool and the shadows lengthen, I will go to the mountain of myrrh, to the hill of incense.
You are all-beautiful, my beloved, and there is no blemish in you.
Song of Songs 4:1G-7
Today I went to St. Jerome’s Church’s 6:15am mass in Los Angeles, California and during mass I had a vision of St. John’s Cup that symbolizes the clearing of poisons. It is a “Cup with a Snake” in it.
John Edwards once said on the show “Crossing Over”, that when he sees pink roses it means “I Love You!” When I was working on my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology, I went home to visit my mother and she had stamps of pink roses.
I intentionally used them to mail letters to my cousin in jail. I don’t know if my mother knew what they meant.
The other day I asked Jesus Christ to show me signs and wonders, we have not because we ask not? I prayed the Saint Theresa prayer from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Downtown Los Angeles, California, the Holy Spirit and the Holy Ghost led me to write an article about world torture and a prayer as Pope Benedict XVI asked.
I was at the Inglewood, California Public Library. I went outside the front door of the Library there I found a “Pink Rose” sitting on the rock walkway.
Be careful what you pray for, you just might get it!
Reported Human Rights violations by Nigerian Police Departments and the Los Angeles Times had an article about Pope Benedict XVI asking for prayer for torture victims, means something is terribly wrong with the world (http://www.vatican.va).
The Pulitzer Center reports under-reported and non-reported world issues (http://www.pulitzercenter.org). For torture to make the Los Angeles Times something is really wrong. It is 2008.
May the Almighty God Shower Supernatural Blessings on the World, Torture Victims, The Human Rights Organizations that help stop these things and may the Almighty God Shower Supernatural Courage to deal with these situations.
For the king’s banquet my nard gives forth its fragrance. My lover is for me a sachet of myrrh to rest in my bosom. My lover is for me a cluster of henna from the vineyards of Engedi.
Ah, you are beautiful, my beloved, ah, you are beautiful; your eyes are doves!
Ah, you are beautiful, my lover-yes, you are lovely. Our couch, too, is verdant; the beams of our house are cedars, our rafters, cypresses.
