Today our great-niece Sarah and her fiance Ben are getting married. I am so glad that they have a beautiful day to celebrate it!

Yesterday's ordination Mass was wonderful. We have three new priests this year.

Father José Parra, Archbishop Robert Carlson, Father David Jenuwine, Father Thai Hung Nguyen

I had mixed feelings yesterday. Joy for our three new priests and sadness that Archbishop Carlson will be leaving us. But he leaves huge legacies of his time with us! God bless Archbishop Carlson as he leaves us to head the archdiocese of St. Louis.


Word of the day:
Saturday of the Ninth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Norbert
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 12:38-44.

In the course of his teaching he said, "Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces, seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets. They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext, recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation." He sat down opposite the treasury and observed how the crowd put money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow also came and put in two small coins worth a few cents. Calling his disciples to himself, he said to them, "Amen, I say to you, this poor widow put in more than all the other contributors to the treasury. For they have all contributed from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has contributed all she had, her whole livelihood."
