    How wonderful are the Saints, they can perform miracles not because they want it but its God who work for them, to show the holiness of the person. Saints are another Christ to others.

    Saint Raymond pray for us, for I desire to become a holy person though I'm not worthy and I'm nothing but if God work in us nothing is impossible. I could not make myself holy, I need God all the time to do good and pleasing to Him.

    I just found out today my Uncle Raymond died. His funeral and burial will be Jan 7, 2013. My wife went to mark our church calendar and saw this was the Feast day for Saint Raymond. It is remarkable that he too died at 100 years of age.
    Saint Raymond pray for my uncle.

    I am expecting my case at the minicipal court of seattle on the 17th to be dismissed by the reason of my supplication to God and prayers from Saint Raymond. This is indeed my last card. I have been lurred several times but I'm a new creature since I have recieve Chrsit and have change my ways for shop lifting.
