Benedict Quote & Elvis Bible

"Prayer is not a waste of time, it does not rob much space from our activ­i­ties, not even apos­tolic activ­i­ties, it does the exact oppo­site: only if we are able to have a life of faith­ful, con­stant, con­fi­dent prayer will God Him­self give us the strength and capac­i­ty to live in a happy and peace­ful way, to over­come dif­fi­cul­ties and to bear wit­ness with courage." - Pope Benedict

Elvis Bible For Sale
By Jauretsi

Uncle Vester gave this bible to Elvis on his first Christmas in
Graceland (1957). For years, Elvis kept it close, and wrote tons of
notes in it. In one passage, Elvis wrote: “To judge a man by his weakest
link or deed is like judging the power of the ocean by one wave.” An
unnamed British collector will be auctioning off this item, and a few
others on Saturday, September 8th at Omega Auctions.
