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.

Loyalty

Loyalty means nothing unless it has at its heart the absolute principle of self-sacrifice. - Woodrow T. Wilson.

Has everyone in this world forsaken you? Then remember Apostle Paul in prison (Acts 5:41) and understand that to be alone is not to be forsaken ... then you will consider worldly beauty to be ugly. Think of his face streaming with tears; day and night for three years he never ceased to cry (Acts 20:31) and make your own face bright with tears - imitate his weeping.


‎... weep for your sins: your anger, your loss of self-control, your love of revelry. Imitate Paul's tears and you will laugh to scorn the vanities of this passing life. Christ BLESSED these tears when He said: "Blessed are you that weep now, for you shall laugh." (Lk 6:21). Nothing is sweeter than these tears; they are MORE to be DESIRED than ANY laughter.
