The service is down for a second time, did you notice the first? This should be brief as well. Neither should have happened, as I notified the hosting service, and have theoretically 'unlimited service'.
The site should be restored in a few hours as soon as one of the tech people notices the 'high' priority ticket.
Saints' Books received a donation during this, which is very kind and very appreciated. We need donations, more than I can say.
The new forum has been working out productively, and some of the newest news and updates are available on there. The emphasis on the forum is on friendliness, good humor, communion, and debates and agitation type posts are not what it is for, so it works very well.
I've put up some volunteer work posts on the forums, if you ever thought of working with the writings of the saints to help others, the benefits of this kind of activity are great for souls.
And there are few more pleasant activity than preparing books written by the saints and gathering extracts of these for people to read.
I highly recommend it.. there are no requirements for time.. you do as little or as much as you like when you like it, and it is quite simple to do. :) So check out the forums if you are interested, and the posts in the 'Submissions' forum on how to volunteer.
'During our sojourn in this world, we should learn from the saints now in heaven, how to love God. The pure and perfect love of God they enjoy there, consists in uniting themselves perfectly to his will. It would be the greatest delight of the seraphs to pile up sand on the seashore or to pull weeds in a garden for all eternity, if they found out such was God's will. Our Lord himself teaches us to ask to do the will of God on earth as the saints do it in heaven: "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
Because David fulfilled all his wishes, God called him a man after his own heart: "I have found David. . . a man according to my own heart, who shall do all my wills."'
St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori
