Happy Birthday Richard.
This room is for general discussion that doesn't specifically fit into one of the other CatholicMatch rooms. Topics should not be overly serious as this is to be more of a "cafe setting."
Saint Peter's Square was created so that more people could be in the presence of the Pope and was named after Saint Peter, one of Jesus's apostles.

Wishing you many blessings on your special day, Richard, and hoping that the sun shines a little brighter and the world seems a little safer for you now.
May God smile lovingly on you and St. Michael keep you under his protection. May this coming year be the one that sees all your dreams come true.
I know you have experienced some severe anxieties and fears with the recent break-in of your home. Although I also experienced unwanted intruders invade my home, fortunately I was not present at the time of the break-in. I know it would take me a long time to get through such an episode if I ever did while living in that home.
On another hopefully more pleasant note, I appreciate Josephine initiating this thread to wish you a Happy Birthday. May God see fit to grant you many, many more.
Please know you will continue to be in my prayers and I am sure other posters.
Your CM family loves you. Enjoy this special day God created for you.
May the Sacred Heart of Jesus embrace you in His loving arms. May He guide and protect you from any other harm.
On a serious note, thanks for your concern about Richard's well-being. A break-in is an unsettling event.
Let's hope that Richard's birthday produces sunshine in his life and provides respite from his experience.
