An Irish Welcome

Céad Míle Fáilte friend and rover ...
Wherever you come from and whosoever you may be.
That's an Irish greeting and it means

you are welcome
a thousand times over.

A true champion

The mark of a true champion is to stand up to punishment and still come off victorious. 

It is our duty, particularly when it is in God's cause, to accept trials of all kinds, if we ourselves are to be accepted by Him. So redouble your efforts, and watch out for every opportunity; but also keep your eyes on Him who has no need for opportunities, being outside all time.

Whom no senses can reveal
       Was for us made manifest;
Who no ache or pain can feel
           Was for us by pain opprest;
Willing all things to endure
        Our salvation to procure.
