coincidental tag?

Cause Way Thursday
. . . . .

I've been tagged by Adrienne of Adrienne's Catholic Corner.
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

The nearest book to me was, Finding Black and White in a World of Grays - MAKING CHOICES, Practical Wisdom for Everyday Moral Decisions, by Peter Kreeft.

On the unhappy 2nd day after the anniversary of Roe v Wade, this is what I found by following the above directions:

"...The second was childless and eager to adopt. But the first woman paid a healer to kill her child even though the childless woman said to her, 'Please do not kill your child. If you don't want her, I do.' "

Now, how's that for a passage coincidental to the calendar of events this week?

I tag:
The first 5 responders.

The book nearest to me was "Arise From Darkness" by Fr. Benedict Groeschel.
"Here in this world, we poor men who are called priests stand in for him according to his command. Make up your mind to use death as we are supposed to. It can lift our eyes to eternity."

Uncle Jim - that is pretty powerful.

I haven't read that book. I'll for sure slip it on to my Amazon wish list and when my first SS check comes next month I'll go on a feeding frenzy.

Was that coincidence or providence?

I'll take you up on this perhaps on Sunday.
