May the Lord God bless you!
I beg your forgiveness if I offended you in any way. We all must be
careful at all of our utterances, and certainly all of us have fallen
short. The faithful ,which we are ordained to serve ,ought be able to
look to us as an example of Christ's love and mercy, particularly in
our relations with each other. Sadly ,this is often not the case. I
ask for your prayers and assure you of my unworthy prayers.
