    In Genesis 49 Jacob gathered his sons (Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Juda Zebulun, Issacher, Dan, Gad, Asher, Naphtali, Joseph and Benjamin) together and after blessing them as each merited, he died.

    Earlier in Genesis 48, Joseph had introduced his sons Manasseh and Ephraim to his father Jacob who blessed them and prophesied that the younger Ephraim would be more successful than the elder, Manasseh to the displeasure of Joseph. They were strangely translated from grandchildren to firstborn

    Of Galaxies and Things
    (a children's poem)

    There are galaxies galore
    In the universe;
    Billions upon billions more
    Countless and diverse.

    Our galaxy, the Milky Way
    Has glowing spiral arms.
    Beautiful; a grand display
    Lovely; full of charm.

    Eight planets orbit our sun;
    Four near - the others far;
    The inner and the outer ones
    Sailing 'round our star.

    Each on a solitary course

    Cats On My Bed
    (a children's poem)

    So I woke up this morning
    With a cat on my head,
    And two others sleeping
    At the foot of my bed.

    They think they are special,
    And to us they are;
    For in our eyes
    They're each one a star.

    There's Cookie the kitten:
    A cute so-and-so:
    Our other cats follow
    Her where she may go.

    They're lap cats; they're purr cats,
    They're funny

    Anyone who has attended a burial has heard the priest praying to God to grant the soul of the deceased eternal rest and peace, etc. Often the mourners are enjoined in these prayers.

    In 1254 Pope Innocent IV adopted purgatory as an official doctrine of the Catholic Church: see the Apocrypha (2 Maccabees 12:46) in support of this practice. Catholics are encouraged to pray for the redemption of the souls of their loved ones who are supposedly in purgatory. In the middle ages it was a

  5. The One I Love

    The One I Love

    Lord of Light, I bend my knee
    And bow my head to only Thee;
    You are the One I love the most -
    The Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

    Beautiful and just are You;
    Wonderful; forever true.
    I lift my voice to praise Your name;
    To please; obey you is my aim.

    When dark days come I do not fear
    For I know that you are right here
    To comfort me - to show the way;
    To keep me from going astray.
