Today is the Lord's Day and Remembrance Day 2012

Simone de Magestris (c.1538-1613), The Risen Christ

Jesus sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury.
Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents.
Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood (Mark 12:41-44)."

Almighty and merciful God, graciously keep from us all adversity, so that, unhindered in mind and body alike, we may pursue in freedom of heart the things that are yours. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Le 11 novembre est le jour du Souvenir. Nous prenons le temps d’avoir une petite pensée pour les Canadiens qui ont fièrement défendu leur pays et la paix internationale… On se souvient surtout de ceux qui malheureusement, sont morts en service militaire.
