This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings.

  1. Darling, forgive me for my absence the past few days. I had long session with myself and my why my discerning self is always wrong. Partly because I’m self-serving, impatient, and mostly,I think,that I was taught to be decisive and act. I tried to be that way as it was my father’s directive. However,he and I clashed a lot over the deference about what he thought I should have done rather my decision and it’s results. Worst was that CIA deal (Project M-K Ultra) in Vietnam. I recalled what they did this weekend carried that around constantly. The only break I had was brief periods when I prayed long informal prayers. Of course, I also prayed to Him about you too. The CIa taught me how to react with Primal reactions animal instincts not human of coursethe used some drugs and brainwashing to accomplish this. So I dealt with this and then Understanding,Knowledge, yielded some Wisdom. I am glad that I have dealt with this as I was tested quickly. My neighbors dog jumped on me and busted my lip. Former Hughie would’ve reacted unthinkingly, grabbed his ears and broke it’s neck. New Hughie stepped back a step and my neighbor got his dog under control. Long way to go but I have faith I can do this and zct the same way discernment,in fact I am just letting all take it’s course and with God, Jesus, Mary,Joseph I will do much better.Pray for me dearest
