Contemplata aliis Tradere

A meagre contribution to the mission and work of the Order of Preachers: my reflections, thoughts, ideas and the occasional rant on matters mainly theological, philosophical and ecclesiastical, drawn primarily from my reading and experience of life and the world. Striving to be always Catholic, firmly Christian and essentially Dominican, flavoured with dashes of Von Balthasar.

Update on my Grandmother's health

Thank you all for your prayers for my grandmother. I received the following email from my aunt , who is caring for her, this morning:

"She [my grandmother] managed to go to church yesterday, using the walker. God's timing was very good - there was a Chinese pastor (from Sabah) who was conducting a healing service. As there were so many people at the altar, we told her to just stand up and trust God's healing. [My grandfather and my aunt] were laying our hands on her back. A few minutes later, she noticed and felt that the pain at her back was gone and her legs had gained a little strength. At the end of the service, she stood up by herself and walked out of church without using the walker! Praise the Lord. He has done a healing on her. Truly doctors can only give medication to help but healing comes from the

This certainly sounds wonderful and I thank God for his mercy, love and healing. I thank Our Blessed Mother for her powerful intercession and continue to entrust my Grandmother and family to her.

Bro. Lawrence,

good to hear your grandma is fine. I am sure you are doing fine, too, in the novitiate.Relish and cherish your "close" moments with the Lord. As Scripture says, "Taste and see the goodness of the Lord."
