Remembering Tony

tribute-to-tony-lee

A tribute to Tony Lee published in the Garabandal International magazine (by the Australian Garabandal International Apostolate)  

On 19th October it will be six months since my beloved husband Tony returned to the Lord. While he is missed in so many ways, we strive to continue his prayerful work of praying for others, one prayer group of which is in the name of Our Lady of Garabandal.

He was associated with the Australian Garabandal International Apostolate since January 1990 and the team has published a tribute to Tony in their quarterly magazine. While it was published a few months ago, we waited to share this in the blog, so as to commemorate his 6-month anniversary this month.

We wish to express our deepest appreciation to the Australian team of Tony Kissane, Judy Bond, Judy Terry and Regina O’Shaughnessy for honouring Tony’s memory in the magazine.

Our Lady of Garabandal, pray for us and the world.

Amen.

Praying The Rosary

In the Catholic liturgical calendar, today, 7 October is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. The month of October is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary, in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Praying the rosary has a profound effect on people’s lives. Perhaps this is an opportune time to share one lady’s personal experiences – the article is called:

While we are on the topic of prayers, let us pray for each other and for Peace in the world.

God bless us all.

Amen.

 

Brushing For Bright Eyes!

sue-brushing-eyebrow-12-aug-2016

Suzanne, 92, brushes her eyebrows several  times a day, upon waking up, after reading or watching tv.

Like every part of the body, one’s eye area needs to be ‘woken up’ after sleep or after an intense period of reading or looking at electronic gadgets!  Even when your eyes are feeling sluggish when suffering from sinus or a cold.

I just use a soft toothbrush and brush my eyebrows one at a time, starting from the inner end to the outer end. Repeat it a few times and it activates the blood circulation in the eye area…and immediately the tired eye feels revitalised.

Simple as that. If my eyelids are heavy with sleepiness, brushing my eyebrows helps to keep my eyes open.

Have a blessed day.

Amen
