On Friday morning, April 16, 2010, I found a Prayer To Obtain Favors While Walking...

Hail and blessed be the hour and the moment in which the son of God was born of the most pure Virgin Mary, at midnight, in Bethlehem, in piercing cold. In that hour vouchsafe, O my God! to hear my prayer and grant my desires, through the merits of Our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of His blessed Mother. Amen.

Today is a blessed day to reach out to others and share the faith in Jesus Christ, Our Lord, as the son of God, begotten by the Virgin Mary.

Aramaic is an Endangered Language in the 21st century, BBC News

Now the only place left in the world where it has remained virtually unchanged since biblical times is losing its Aramaic speakers, as people leave to find work elsewhere.
