The Real Miss America

I’ve crawled from beneath my rock again, and it is quite amazing what’s going on in the world. It seems that a citizen of the United States of America with an Indian heritage has won the 2014 Miss America [Is it still called a beauty pageant?]. (I guess the Miss America doesn’t follow the Gregorian Calendar or the Julian Calendar. Seems they follow the Detroit Calendar. (Is Toyota (a city located in Aichi Prefecture, Japan) the New Detroit?) This does not surprise me at all since I’ve often thought that some of the most physically beautiful women in the world are from the asian subcontinent, closely followed by the women northwest of them.

My Prayer Intention for Jennifer

My wife, Jennifer, is very sick. She has been for many years. I too have been sick for many years, but not anymore. Our Lady, Mediatrix of all Graces, has given me many graces from Our Lord, more than I expected; and, I’m sure there are more to come if I accept them. I pray that Our Lady give Jennifer all of the graces that Our Lord has for her. Perhaps one of these graces is the healing of her health.

Like the novena I asked for myself from March 11th to March 19th to Blessed John Duns Scotus for my healing, I also asked for a novena from October 4th to October 12th for Jennifer’s healing. March 11th was the 20th anniversary of my entrance into the Catholic Church and March 20th was the 20th anniversary of the beatification of Blessed John Duns Scotus.
