Off I went to La Crosse and the beautiful Shrine of our Lady. If you haven’t been…
The morning fog drifting in the clefts of the hills.
A dear friend, Fr. Ferguson, the official Paradohymnodist of the Blog.
I bought a reproduction of the painting, which hangs on the wall of the Cupboard Under The Stairs.
I had a good long talk today with His Eminence about various matters that concern the smaller and the larger Church. It was great watching him listen to the talks today. You can’t tell that he really believes. Even when fairly pedantic quotes were read, you could see him close his eyes and take them in.
Because I am involved with a 501c3 I was especially interested in this talk on charitable giving, etc.
There was a lot to today. The best part was THE PEOPLE. Great laypeople and clerics whom I have gotten to know over the years. These people are fantastic. They come from all over.
You are fortunate if some of them are from your diocese.
There was a lot of disturbing talk today, frankly. But there was a great deal that was positive too. God is with His Church, though it is hard to see.
