More than ever I feel the need of having Thee close to me.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

American, Catholic, Republican and now the new Speaker of the House
H/T to http://whispersintheloggia.blogspot.com/ for posting on Ohio Congressman, John Boehner's new status after the big vote yesterday. In just over 200 years only 4 Catholics have been entrusted with the gavel - and they were all Democrats.
Boehner (pronounced BAY-ner) is actively Pro Life and comes from a family of 12 children.
Married for 35 years, he is a fan of the UK Coalition Government's moves to curb spending and get the economy back on track.
