Taking a Lenten break ... and a job update
« on: February 13, 2018, 08:42:23 AM »
Hello friends. I am off for a while. Don't want to be distracted till Easter. Want to spend more time in prayer, reading and spiritual practices. Truthfully, am feeling a bit rusty in my prayer life, and need to work on it. Pray for me. Will be praying for the folk at sd.

Beside that, have an other news to share. I've been offered a great job, with decent hours and a good pay. It's a typical investment role in an advisory capacity, but it requires some know how and expertise in international trade. Have a couple of months off before I join that I want to put to the best use. And yeah, It will also require relocation and other preparation. And probably I'll be really busy on the job once I take it up. But I'm happy and it's what I want to do professionally. Have a break the ice meeting with some folk from the company this Saturday. Hope all goes well.

Hope all is well with you good folk on SD and wish you all a great Lent.

"We bind to ourselves today The strong virtue of the Invocation of the Trinity: We believe the Trinity in the Unity The Creator of the Universe. We bind to ourselves today The virtue of the Incarnation of Christ with His Baptism, The virtue of His crucifixion with His burial, The virtue of His Resurrection with His Ascension, The virtue of His coming on the Judgement Day. We bind to ourselves today The virtue of the Love of Seraphim, In the Obedience of Angels, In the hope of Resurrection unto Reward, In prayers of Patriarchs, In predictions of Prophets, In preaching of Apostles, In faith of Confessors, In purity of holy Virgins, In deeds of righteous men ... We invoke today all these virtues Against every hostile merciless power which may assail body and soul, Against the incantations of false prophets, Against the black laws of heathendom, Against the false laws of heretics, Against the deceits of idolatry ... Against every knowledge that binds the soul of man." ~Breastplate prayer of St. Patrick. Please pray for Ireland and to St. Patrick.

Xavier,

I will miss your wisdom here, but you are probably doing the better thing. Congratulations on your job!
