Remembering John Victor Morais

John Victor Morais, and his wife of five decades, Gladys Vaz Morais.

In remembrance of the life of John Victor Morais, born this day, December 18, 1910. Returned to God’s nearer presence Mar 6, 1991.

With gratitude for setting an example of what can be accomplished with determination, despite the odds; an example of a life of unassuming generosity, attentiveness to those around him,  and unannounced kindnesses that quietly lifted many lives.

             May God bless you with discomfort

At easy answers, halftruths, and superficial relationships,
So that you may live deep within your heart.

          May God bless you with anger
At injustice, oppression and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.


            May God bless you with tears
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger, and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them
And turn their pain into joy.

         And may God bless you with enough foolishness
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children, and the poor.
        Amen.

      Very nice and sweet remembrance of our wonderful beloved Daddy on his birthday today. He would have been 107 today.

    A very loving remembrance of Daddy on his birthday, dearest Dawn.. I thought about him a lot on that day, and quietly did some acts of mercy in his name. I think he would have been pleased. What wonderful role models he and Mum were for us and others, and how blessed we were to have them as parents.

  3. Great tribute to papa and a wonderful blessing aunty Dawn.
