Mother Nealis, Walk with Jesus......June 3

Just a closer walk with thee,
Grant it, Jesus, is my plea;
Daily walking close to thee,
Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.

I am weak, but thou art strong;
Jesus, keep me from all wrong;
I'll be satisfied as long
As I walk; let me walk close to thee.

Traditional Folk Song

Latin for "Permit the little children ..."

I love this Holy Card. The colors are so vivid and any time Jesus is with little children... well, my heart melts.

Love you in Carmel,

"Sinite parvulos ..." is Latin for "Permit the little children ..." -- which you will recognize as words of Jesus to his disciples ("Let the little ones come to me").

Welcome, Gina Elizabeth. Believe it or not, I used to know a Gina who had "OCDS" on her license plate. It refers to Secular (formerly Third Order) Carmelite, correct?

I haven't heard that song in ages! I don't think it's Catholic but I do love it. It's MUCH better than a lot of the drek we hear from the "Gather" hymnal...erm....songbook.

Gina - So nice to know you still stop by to visit. I was so happy to see Elly and Joey growing up so wonderfully.

John - Thank you for the translation. Perfect for the picture.

Angela - I agree with you totally.
I love it too, I even know all the words by heart :-)

Yes, it does refer to the Secular Carmelite Order. Just became professed on Trinity Sunday and I love puting the initials after my name. Thanks for the translation.

I love your site and I miss not stopping by every day. I finally think that I have turned the corner on no time for myself at least for now. So, I will be here every day now even if I do not leave a message.

Thank you for your prayers for my preemies and I am deeply appreciate it.

Love in Carmel,
Gina Elizabeth O.C.D.S
