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.

....and the Bishops snored on....today's top post
An excellent post on the state of the Church and on the Cardinal O'Brien affair may be read at The Eye Witness - the subject matter may be sad but the recognition and 'hope' is heartening.
In particular I like the reference to St Thomas More's quote:
"The Bishop's of England my Lord, would have snored through the Sermon on the Mount"
I would, of course, like to add 'Wales' to that quote.
