Spring Song By Daniel Schultz, South Haven Come now Paraclete, come Dove, Spring Wind, Come and make us whole. We had sinned and suffered terrible blows. We deserved them all, and worse; now make us whole! In His Name, by His Blood, in the smell of the soil, Make us modest and sweet. Help us to see Him in all, From the fishes to the maimed and made up. We had believed the lie. We did not believe that God is Good. The lying one of hell had harassed us so fiercely. He had taken no pity on our worn out souls. Now the Lion of Love has arisen; Our King, in Flesh and Blood, has appeared. We have seen that he was always with us. He created us and never left us. We are so surprised with wonder at God's great Love; we are so in awe of something we never knew. He has not abandoned anyone; No, not a single soul has been forgotten. Let us sing now, and not delay; Let us not think but sing and pray to One God In Three; Can we not find our voices? Can we not shout for so great a joy? Je-shu'-a is Mercy, and Honor and Peace, He has given us all, all Heaven, all Life; Strife has vanished, and prose has become extinct; Let us enter His temple, and Sing now as one; Let us come into Home and find us, in Them St. Cloud Hospital NICU celebrates 25 years Celebrate a quarter century of outstanding care for the tiniest and sickest of infants at our NICU reunion from 2-4 p.m. Sunday, May 5, in the St. Cloud Hospital Conference Center.

Oh, most beautiful flower of Mount Carmel, fruitful vine, splendor of heaven, blessed Mother of the Son of God, Immac- ulate Virgin, assist me in this my necessity. Oh, Star of the Sea, help me and show me you are my Mother. Oh, Holy Mary, Mother of God, queen of heaven and earth, I humbly beseech you from the bot- dren's activities, refreshments, vis- iting with staff and construction updates on our new NICU with all- private rooms scheduled to open this summer.

Oh, Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee (3 times). Holy Mother, I place this cause in your hands (3 times). Say this prayer for three consecutive days and then you must publish and it will be granted to you. Many grateful thanks. C.M. Project New Hope to be presented April 13 Kingston Lions have asked Don Pals of Project New Hope to come and speak about Project New Hope retreats at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 13, at the Kingston Commu- nity Center. Everybody is welcome to come and hear him; there is no charge. Offering new hope to veterans and their families through week- end retreats. At Project New Hope, we are driven by our mission: To provide veterans and their fam- ilies the education, training and skills necessary to manage their lives after wartime service. Project New Hope was founded in 2007 by caring individuals who understand that for veterans arid their families, wartime doesn't end the day that soldier comes home. The effects of serving our country in the military are often felt throughout a soldier's entire lifetime, and can have an impact on each family member as well, often in ways that may be quite subtle or hidden from view. We realize the process of heal- ing and understanding is a vital component to life success after war. Each family member will deal with what has happened in their own way. Returning sol- diers face the challenge of tran- sition from war footing, to civil- ian home life. Often, it can seem as though they're in it alone, as though people expect them to pick up where they'd been, as though nothing had changed during their time away. Spouses may strug- gle with changes in the home, first with their soldier gone, and then to another set of changes after the return. Children may lack the maturity to indepen- dently adjust to the absence of a parent, their return, and transi- tions which must take place. No matter which era a soldier served in - Korea, Vietnam, The Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan - it doesn't mat- ter at Project New Hope. All U.S. veterans and their families are welcome. Because of the gener- ous donations of Lions Clubs and others, there is no charge to the families for attending Project New Hope retreats, financial concerns will never prevent us from offering our services to soldiers and their families. If you or someone you know has served our country in times of war, please join Project New Hope for a weekend retreat for the entire family. Come join other veterans and their families, as we all con- tinue on the journey. What hap- pened before was beyond our con- trol, what happens next, is up to you. Why there's a need: Unprecedented survival rates 25 percent of all homeless are combat veterans. Suicide rates for veterans ages 20-24 are four times greater than that of a civilian. * 200+ veterans become dis- abled every day.
