We love what we do!

Last night we finished up the final mix on our CD. The recording technician took $1620 off our bill as a donation to our parish. Grateful does not even come close to covering what I feel. Our budget was $1500. Our final cost is $1748. I'd say we came pretty darn close! Now that I know what the costs are going to be, I am really getting excited. The reaction to this whole thing has been very positive - with the exception of one person, and I am going to just ignore him. LOL!

I didn't see the Healthcare speech last night, but from what I hear, President Obama is still telling us that abortion will not be federally funded. He's either ignorant of how the system works, or he is being disingenuous.

Word of the day:
Thursday of the Twenty-third week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Nicholas of Tolentino, Confessor (+ 1310)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:27-38.

But to you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. To the person who strikes you on one cheek, offer the other one as well, and from the person who takes your cloak, do not withhold even your tunic. Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you. For if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do the same. If you lend money to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit (is) that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, and get back the same amount. But rather, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend expecting nothing back; then your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as (also) your Father is merciful. Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you."
