Blessings

Easter seemed strange this year. No family get togethers. No Holy Week Masses. I know I could have watched them online but I just didn’t. I think I was just plain sad. There is nothing wrong with being sad. Living in this strange new world, I think I would be crazy if I didn’t feel… Read More ›

Help Me to Be Humble

For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted. – Lk 14:11 Jesus invites us to a banquet. Do we accept the invitation? Do we invite others to join us at the banquet? Do we try to do as Jesus does? Or do we expect gifts or… Read More ›

O Happy Day!

Our new granddaughter arrived into this world early in the morning of August 24. She is beautiful. Of course.  She is our youngest son’s first child. I just burst with pride as I see him take on the role of new father so naturally. He is already in the protective mode. Right now he is… Read More ›
