Late have I loved you, O Beauty ever ancient, ever new, late have I loved you! You were within me, but I was outside, and it was there that I searched for you. In my unloveliness I plunged into the lovely things which you created. You were with me, but I was not with you. Created things kept me from you; yet if they had not been in you they would not have been at all. You called, you shouted, and you broke through my deafness. You flashed, you shone, and you dispelled my blindness. You breathed your fragrance on me; I drew in breath and now I pant for you. I have tasted you, and now I hunger and thirst for more. You touched me, and I burned for your peace.As I walked this morning from the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace to the church of St. Augustine by the Sea, I couldn't help but consider these words from a different perspective.

You could not wish for better people, gentle, pleasant mannered, exceedingly tender-hearted, they neither seek to amass riches, or live in luxury, or dress much, but are most hospitable, and ready to deprive themselves of necessities in order to supply your every want if you have ask a night's shelter from them.Each time I return to this blessed land, I find this description quite apt. Once you meet an Hawaiian, you are quickly part of their ohana, their family, and very often you instantly become an "uncle" or an "auntie". Once you have been welcomed into their homes you are always welcome, even without notice.
Test results confirmed that the nodule on the liver contained cancerous cells. This nodule and surrounding tissue was removed on August 15, and there does not appear to be cancer in the liver now. While tests also confirmed that the right kidney contains cancer cells, additional testing did not conclude with certainty that there is cancer elsewhere in his body. Cancerous cells in the bloodstream, however, are impossible to detect.Please, pray for Cardinal George.
Based on these medical findings, the Cardinal's doctors have recommended a course of chemotherapy. Beginning Wednesday, September 5, he will undergo six sessions, each session running three weeks. Chemotherapy will be administered the first two weeks of each session and the third week, free of chemotherapy, will allow the immune system to recuperate.
It's not always clear what's appropriate. Airlines don't publish dress codes. There are no rules that spell out the highest hemline or the lowest neckline allowed. That can leave passengers guessing how far to push fashion boundaries. Every once in a while the airline says: Not that far.
