I call upon You, Lord, God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob and Israel, You who are the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the God who, through the abundance of your mercy, was well-pleased towards us so that we may know You, who made heaven and earth, who rules over all, You who are the one and the true God, above whom there is no other God; You who, by our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit, give to every one who reads this writing to know You, that You alone are God, to be strengthened in You, and to avoid every heretical and godless and impious teaching.

St Irenaeus of Lyons, Against the Heresies 3:6:4

Lifting up Joni Eareckson Tada

Yesterday I heard on a radio program that Joni Eareckson Tada, founder and CEO of Joni and Friends, has, on top of being a quadriplegic, breast cancer. She has had a mastectomy already and has updates of her condition at the ministry’s website. Let us remember this extraordinary woman and bright witness for Christ in our prayers and thoughts.
