Is Magda safe? Prayers and thoughts going out to everyone in Paris who
was affected by this horrific terrorist act.

Members of my family (Brits) are popping into Paris this weekend for a pre-Christmas meal with French in-laws at whichever restaurant.
Life ain't going to stop, so it might as well go on.
As long as one doesn't push the odds by weekending in Damascus, what else can we all do?

Yes, Jean, I am, thank you for asking.

I was home Friday evening, watching a video. The atrocities happened about 2-3 Km from my
place, in a straight line; the Stade de France is much further away, I didn't hear
anything. Still, it was terrifying to know that there was - literally - blood in the
streets.

Let's brace ourselves, the worst is yet to come.


I am so glad that you are safe, Magda. At meetings that we have attended
and during Masses at our parish church, we have had periods of silence
and prayers said for you and your country. Those barbarians MUST be
stopped. As terrifying as it was and still is, we must have faith and
hope for a better outcome. Take care and be safe.

--Jean
