"jel bday rose finish"

Finally fifteen days after my birthday, June 13th, the gift drawing from Erik, a friend, finished this morning. =)) Yeay!!!
It is a 3 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches made up of alot of dots of black and white color ink to make it darker and india ink, etc. (dunno what/howelse he made it, he said he'll gonna teach me sometime soon how it's done) This took him forever as he said about 25 hours all in all. I still don't have it on hand coz he's busy doing other errands and he promised to mail it by Monday(if not too busy still)
He promised not to show it to me until I receive and hold it, but he showed it sooner than he wanted. Don't you think he spoiled the fun of showing it to me earlier on pc? Yes he did. :/ I actually don't want to see it (eventhough i really want to) unless i hold it personally and see the actual beauty of it, but he's just too excited and insisted to let me than the person he's giving. But the sight of it made me smile =) and surprised! yes surprised, i don't expect the drawing to be a rose especially a yellow one which is a fave color! He promised to draw me a self-portrait but not =( Maybe i can ask for another one? lol Not only what I've expected it to be astonished me but the drawing itself, a yellow rose!! I've been dying(oh not the right and exact word i guess) to receive a yellow rose from anyone/someone (special?) over the centuries everytime my natal day comes and now i received one!? It may not be the actual real rose that i most wanted but still a rose that is yellow... and it got me thinking.... will He be the one?? lol 'Though i know a yellow one means Friendship. :D Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......... :p
But yeah Thanks alot Erik for this. ISOOLOVEIT!!!! 'tho it took you forever.. :p You're my Twin and u know that :)) :hugsss: (~_^)

The iconic image of Saint Anthony, with book of Scripture, Christ Child, and the lily of the Annunciation, rendered by Guercino, 1656

Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints.

O Holy St. Anthony, gentlest of Saints, your love for God and Charity for His creatures made you worthy, when on earth, to possess miraculous powers. Miracles waited on your word, which you were ever ready to speak for those in trouble or anxiety. Encouraged by this thought, I implore of you to obtain for me (request). The answer to my prayer may require a miracle. Even so, you are the saint of Miracles.

O gentle and loving St. Anthony, whose heart was ever full of human sympathy, whisper my petition into the ears of the Sweet Infant Jesus, who loved to be folded in your arms, and the gratitude of my heart will ever be yours.

Amen. (Say 13 Our Fathers, Hail Marys, and Glorias)


Saint Anthony of Lisbon
Doctor of the Church
Born ca. 1195, Lisbon
Died 13 June 1231, Padua
Venerated in Roman Catholic Church
Canonized 30 May 1232, Spoleto, Italy by Pope Gregory IX
Major shrine Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua in Padua, Italy
Feast June 13
Attributes book; bread; Infant Jesus; lily
Patronage animals; barrenness; Brazil; Beaumont, Texas; elderly people; faith in the Blessed Sacrament; Ferrazzano, Italy; fishermen; Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land; harvests; horses; Lisbon; lost articles; lower animals; mail; mariners; American Indians; Masbate, Philippines; Cavite, Philippines; Sibulan, Negros Oriental, Philippines; oppressed people; Padua, Italy; poor people; Portugal; pregnant women; sailors; seekers of lost articles; shipwrecks; starvation; sterility; swineherds; Tigua Indians; travel hostesses; travellers; watermen


St. Anthony is a very complex personality. Elements of reciprocal conflict existed within him. Every man is an enigma, if not an enigma of enigmas, not easily understood in terms of clear and distinct mechanisms.

Even a saint is unfathomable. Admitting that this is an imperfect and approximate analysis, we will try to explore some aspects of this extraordinary man.

His moral qualities emerge from his voice. His voice was highly praised by hagiographers. It was defined as amazing, with a rich range of inflection: quiet and strong, melodious and deep, clear and pleasant. He spoke for hours with sweetness and gentleness, or with a serious, deep tone. His effective oratory skills made use of every bit of persuasion, he was neither insidious nor abstract, nor empty and rowdy. He was deep, but well-fit for any audience, capable of interesting anyone. He obtained the approval of all listeners through his winning arguments. What had the greatest effect however was the active participation with which he spoke and his coherence in practicing what he preached.

The Saint's behaviour, though talented like few others in his day, was deprived of harshness and haughtiness. He was instead sweet and humble. He dressed poorly and was approachable to even the poorest and most ignorant people. His kindness and courtesy to everyone was remarkable, as was his patience and humanity. However, he was naturally effusive in pouring out scared doctrine, that whomever he spoke with, young or old, was struck by the truth of what he was saying. He certainly had a character of steel, but this was measured by a deep humanity. Anthony had led a life deprived of egocentricism. He felt that to give was more rewarding than to receive. He loved and was loved in return.

A writer wrote the following moral profile having gathered information from people who lived with Anthony:

Devoutly charitable, very wise and eloquent, pleasant to talk and converse with, patient despite ill health, benevolent in exhorting, strict in correcting, sweet when welcoming sinners, humble when exercising authority, thankful for benefits received, devoted to prayer, silent in the convent, a frugal eater, wise in meetings, kind to his equals, respectful to his superiors, courteous gentle with his inferiors. A great Saint and a fascinating man!

It is a pity we cannot approach him in person. But there are plenty of saints in our lives, and the God's Church is rich in them.

"A nation is born into freedom on the day when such a people, moulded into a nation by a process of cultural evolution and sense of oneness born of common struggle and suffering, announces to the world that it asserts its natural right to liberty and is ready to defend it with blood, life, and honor."
Diosdado Macapagal
Former President of the Philippines
