    Couldn’t have landed in my inbox at a better moment.

    Thanks Ginny for being the conduit!

    Spot on Padre Pio… would that one could stick to it.

      Nadine, Wellies and Mary — thank you so much for responding to Padre Pio’s five-word exhortation! I say the words over and over because they are easy to remember and go to the heart of — well, everything. When you come to what must be the last years of your life, as I do, simplicity is all.

      I was going to write a long spiel of a Commonplace about Padre Pio but a person can easily find the bones at least online, so I opted for grabbing a reader by the throat instead; I’m so glad that you three at least were impressed!

      Perhaps it is all a question of trust?

      Pray — One never knows if one is “doing” it correctly, and one so often loses the thread…

      Hope — BH is an arch “hoper” — he relies on it entirely and where he goes I follow…

      Don’t worry — This is for our century, for all age groups, genders, races — peoples.

      One would like to sky-write the words across the world! Ginny
