An Inspiring Blog
Today I received a message from one of my friends, Phillip Gerard Johnson, who informed me that at 24-years of age, he has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. He has beautifully written about the physical, mental, and spiritual anguish on his blog, In Caritate Non Ficta. His brutal honesty and trust in Christ's redeeming power is truly an inspiration. Phillip's trial underscores what I wrote in my last post; saints abound here on earth. They have trials, doubts, and setbacks, but God's power ultimately shines through and transforms them. May we all pray for Phillip, and others like him, who are going through extremely difficult times.
Here is another inspiring blog, written by a young man who triumphed over a serious form of cancer.
As Frank Parater said, "Remember, the Sacred Heart never fails those who love Him." May this give us comfort.
