Good Friday

This phrase is seen next to each crucifix in every Missionaries of Charity home.
He thirsts for you.  For me.  For souls.  He longs not to condemn us, but to fill our lives, our sufferings and joys, with his presence.  He is the living water through which we may have eternal life.  We need only heed this simple cry to see the fullness of His grace.  Lord, grant that I may thirst not for the goods of this world, but for the glory of Your Name.

Friends of the Manatee, a Brazilian conservationist group, rescued this 2-month old Amazonian manatee near the body of its mother. Right now, caretakers are keeping it healthy and preparing to return it to the wild.
