Truth can help shine some light into valley of despair

'A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he travelled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine.' (Luke 10:30-37)

WHAT a perfect pristine summer's day it was yesterday. A bright benign sun beam-ed from a cloudless, azure sky, buffered gently by a soft breeze. It was the sort of day that made you feel good to be alive and content under the comforting canopy of blue.

Unless you were one of the victims who had fallen prey to the priestly predators of Cloyne.
