C5, Holding, Rosemary Mason. Hail Mary full of grace blessed art thou. Hail Mary, Pray for us...if everything happens for a reason. then the gift of suffering is to teach us to be brave when we are afraid, to be strong when we are weak, to be wise in the midst of confusion and to let go of that which we can no longer hold. Lasting victories are won in the heart...we have time in abundance and eternity, to repeat our mistakes, but we need only once to correct them. Then, at last, we will hear the song of enlightenment, with which we can break the chain of vengence forever. In your heart you can hear it now. It is the song you have been singing since the moment of your birth.
