    A member of our parish is studying for the permanent diaconate. We will have two ordinations next week, including a man who is blind. He hasn’t let that stop him at all.

    After several years of stalled attempts (ran out of time, bad weather…) I was finally able to begin and complete my hike to the top of Mt. San Jacinto (Palm Springs, CA). The hike up (and back down) the mountain was both exhilarating and exhausting.

    I give thanks to Almighty God for His creation. I also give thanks for being able to complete this hike.

    It is always wonderful and awe-inspiring to walk through undisturbed (for the most part) areas of His creation and, in doing so, both see and experience the awesome beauty of nature: huge boulders, tall trees and trees in various stages of decay, howling winds that sounded like a freight train, running streams (as a result of the snow melt), crisp air, beautiful panoramic views (especially from the top of the mountain)…

    With God’s help, I look forward to many more hikes.

    Bad news: I won’t be able to go to Acton U again this year because of financial constraints.
    Good news: My visit to the FSSP house has been approved! I still need some paperwork (e.g. visa, plane ticket) to sort, but hopefully, it will push through. Please pray for me, father!

    It’s a girl! Well, probably. We’ll know in October.

  5. rodin says:

    Please do not catch cold again. I always pray for your good health, especially when you are in Rome. My husband and I were especially fond of Rome so I love your photos.

    [I’m very grateful for that. Thank you.]

    Last Friday I tripped in our garage and fell (I’m 16 weeks pregnant, so falling was scary). I called Hubby and my OBGYN, who told me I should go to a nearby ER for a sonogram to make sure baby was okay and – Deo Gratias – baby is fine. I have some bruises but otherwise am also fine. God is very good, family were near and available when we needed them to watch the other kids so Hubby could go with me. Needless to say, bikes will be kept out of the way from now on in our garage. :)

  7. Persistant says:

    Tomorrow is Corpus Christi which means we’ll have a beautiful Mass and procesion after it celebrating the Lord’s wonderful gift that is Eucharist. Since it is also a public holiday in my country, it also means I’ll have a four-day weekend because my college won’t work on friday either. However, we will have to work next saturday to make up for friday.

    A nice counterpoint to my mother’s ongoing medical troubles and frustrations has been good news in from other quarters (and folks turning out to visit).

    A cousin just got engaged.
    The son of another cousin is now a proud father. Mother and two impressively large twins all doing well.
    While this medical saga has brought home that there’s hardly anybody on our side of the family that still lives closer than 50 miles to Mom, those that do have supported closely and visited when possible. Her parish friends have come as well, and my wife’s family (many of whom do live in the area) have turned out.

    We just ordained 6 new permanent deacons for the Diocese of Syracuse. I have watched them grow over the past two years as I am in the class behind them. They will be a blessing to their parishes.

  10. Nan says:

    Nine men were ordained priests today at the Cathedral of St Paul in St Paul MN. Eight archdiocesan priests and one for Pro Ecclesia Sancta, which has a parish near the seminary and is where surplus seminarians are stashed.

    The Cathedral was packed.
