Dangers of Catholic Upbringing

As I walked down a busy street, knowing I was late for Mass, my eye fell upon one of those unfortunate, homeless vagabonds (you know, tattered clothing, long hair etc) that are found in every town these days.


Some people turned to stare. Others quickly looked away as if the sight would somehow contaminate them.

Recalling my old parish priest, Father Tom, who always admonished me to 'care for the sick, feed the hungry and clothe the naked,' 

I was moved by some powerful inner urge to reach out to this unfortunate person.

Wearing what can only be described as rags, carrying every worldly possession in two plastic bags, my heart was touched by this person's condition.

Yes, where some people saw only rags, I saw a 
true, hidden beauty.


A small voice inside my head called out,
'Reach out, reach out and touch this person!'


So I did......

I won't be at Mass this week....

Lilly Sings

Lilly grabbed daddy's ipad,  found his music playlist and started playing his music while singing along with the tunes - she knows the words.

All By Myself

Lilly loves puzzles, but on one this big, I normally help her.  Now she looks at a piece in the pile rotates it and walks direct to where it goes.  Aiden was like that at her age.
