06/19/17 - NNHS Newsletter - The Feast of Saints Gervasius and Protasius

“Let these triumphant victims be brought to the place where Christ is the victim. But He
upon the altar, Who suffered for all; they beneath the altar, who were redeemed by His Passion.
I had destined this place for myself, for it is fitting that the priest should rest there where
he has been wont to offer, but I yield the right hand portion to the sacred victims;
that place was due to the martyrs. Let us, then, deposit the sacred relics,
and lay them up in a worthy resting-place, and let us celebrate the whole day with faithful devotion.”

- St. Ambrose of Milan
(ca. 340 – 04 Apr 397)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   It's true. I really had to dig a bit to find the theme for today's Newsletter, which honors two second century Christian martyrs, the patron saints of Milan and of haymakers, and whose names are invoked for the discovery of thieves.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 06/17/15:

 

“If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.

- Socrates
(
470/469 - 399 B.C.)


   Thanks so much, Susan!


  From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 06/12/17:

  AMEN! Thank you, Joan!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/18/17:

My wife and I have very different body clocks. At sundown she is practically ready for bed. I, meanwhile, am a night owl.

Recently, after a long, hard workday, I announced around 8 p.m. that I was exhausted and ready to hit the sack. Suddenly my wife nearly leapt into my arms.

"Oh, honey," she purred into my ear, "I just love it when you talk early to me."
