Random Thought 1: When I consider all the things that are going on in our world today I want to pray a prayer that will bring God to our assistance and bring that which is good back to its place and destroy the ways of evil. But then I realize that God wants us to do that with his assistance, that is the challenge he gives us. He will then join us in our quest as we recall the words of Don Quixote: To dream the impossible dream, to fight the unbeatable foe, to bear with unbearable sorrow, and to run where the brave dare not go. The world will be better for this, that one man scorned and covered with scars, still strove with his last ounce of courage, to reach the unreachable goal. I always consider those words to be the thoughts of Jesus as he preached to the crowds in Galilee.

            Let us proceed with our lenten journey with that goal in mind: to change the way we, as a people, are proceeding through life without recognizing him as the almighty God. May we call upon him to lead us in our quest to overcome the Devil.
