My Father, you are more powerful than my unholiness.Your love reaches beyond my unfaithfulness. In your mercy heal me, O God. I am not worthy that you may come under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
– Prayer Journal, August 3, 2015
A Mass for Isaac will be this coming Saturday at 9am at Mount Calvary Catholic Church, Baltimore. This will be a Mass for the Feast of the Transfiguration with a memorial theme, as it is the second anniversary of Isaac’s funeral which took place on this feast day.
