But you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you,

FALZON. Cherished memories of my beloved MICHAEL (former RSM 100, Malta Police), especially today being the 12th anniversary of his passing away.

Peacefully sleeping, resting at last,
The world’s weary troubles and
worries are past.
In silence you suffered, in patience you bore
‘til God called you home to suffer no more.
Rest in peace beloved Michael,
Twelve long years have passed away.
You’re gone but are still living
In my heart every single day.
Always in my thoughts and prayers. Alice x.

Unfailing prayer to St Anthony

O, holy St Anthony, gentlest of saints, your love for God and charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble and anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (request). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle, even so, you are the saint of miracles. O gentle and loving St Anthony, whose heart was ever so full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the sweet infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours. A.B.
