where the eagles will gather

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress,
and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink,
but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct,
will pursue their principles unto death.

Leonardo da Vinci

Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a sabbath.
For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning
of the world until now, no, and never will be.
And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would be saved;
but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.
Then if any one says to you,
‘Lo, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.
For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders,
so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.
Lo, I have told you beforehand.
So, if they say to you, ‘Lo, he is in the wilderness,’ do not go out;
if they say, ‘Lo, he is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.
For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west,
so will be the coming of the Son of man.
Wherever the body is,
there the eagles will be gathered together.

Matthew 24:20-28

    Julie, so many are praying and my prayer is that you will feel the strength of those prayers. As I mentioned, your name is in the Book of Prayer Intentions at our parish which means that every day the parishioners pray for you and on the weekend probably that means over 7000 are praying. It is overwhelming to think of that. My prayer is that your dad will come to a place of peace so that you will be at peace. Blessings.
