At present, the Power Cuts are happening twice everyday. Sadly, they are occurring during the hours I have available to do the posts. Hopefully, they will cease by the end of this week …. for a while anyway.
Remember, a very important aspect of daily life is MAINTENANCE! This word applies to our temporal affairs and, of course, most importantly, to our spiritual lives.
South Africa’s problem is lack of this big word, “Maintenance” – for very many years – around 30 odd! – Now we stumble in the darkness, the only light being the light of fires – I doubt the analogy is lost on you all.
Please pray for us – let us pray constantly for each other.
Last night and then again this morning, our power was cut. Our power supplier, here in South Africa, calls it “load shedding.”
I am posting what I can in the time available.
Blessed Laetare Sunday to you all! Let us all be joyful, power or not!
So sorry for the sparsity of posts today and even dearest Cardinal Bacci’s advice, on ‘The Order of the Day’ doesn’t help too much, when we suffer 3 periods per day of 2 1/2 hours each, of this thing called load-shedding!
His advice for me, means we have to adapt to suit load-shedding! I will try harder but, sadly, we are only advised of the planned power cuts each morning – oftentimes too late to pre-plan.
God bless you all and please add South Africa to your planned daily prayers, I beg.

There is nothing I can do – 8 December
South Africa is struggling under what is called “Load Shedding.”
This means our Electricity is switched off, up to 4 times per day, for 2 1/2 hours each time.
So when my posts are foreshortened, you will know why.
It is extremely frustrating, to put it mildly!
Please Pray for South Africa!
So Sorry – No electricity!
Again this country is facing darkness (in many ways) but we are facing a melt-down in regard to electricity – the power is being cut at various times throughout each day to conserve the national grid.
Unfortunately, the times allocated to my area, meant I was unable to prepare any posts in the time I had available.
Hopefully, it will be better tomorrow.
May God Bless you, I miss you all!
May the Blessed Virgin, model of docility to the Spirit, help us, to abandon ourselves to Divine Providence.
P.S. The Novena to St Joseph was pre-scheduled so will arrive in your inbox.
Apologies for the lack of posts today – we had 12 hours of no electricity, no internet, etc!
