Memory Flashback Begin Page 30

Belo Horizonte 14 to 16 April 2006

Together with Dawn, Nossani and Danny, we joined this package to Belo Horizonte, the capital city of Minas Gerais at Southwest of Brazil. With Nossani around, of course we took lots of beautiful photos.

Nearby the city, we also travelled Ouro Preto - the former Capital of Minas Gerais state and Mariana which was the first city, capital, village and the State diocese.

I even bought a nice bookmark with the poem of Peace Prayer by St Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me bring love.
Where there is injury, let me bring pardon.
Where there is discord, let me bring union.
Where there is doubt, let me bring faith.
Where there is error, let me bring truth.
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is sadness, let me bring joy.
Where there is darkness, let me bring light.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive. It is pardoning that we are pardoned.
It is dying that we are born to eternal life.

These words are so powerful that I feel faith and love when reading it, it bring me a lot more strength to carry on when I feel down.
