We're just about half-way through February. Hard to believe. The kids were all over here last night. It was a nice family gathering. Hopefully, the next time we all get together, everyone will be healthy. This bug that has been circulating is pretty nasty.
Anna spent some time trying to hook up our wireless router. After waiting on hold for 15 minutes with customer service, she was instructed to leave a voice mail. Nice! The good news is that our speed will be higher once the router is up and working.
Word of the day:
Saturday of the Fifth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : Bl. Jordan of Saxo, Dominican Priest (c. 1190-1237)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 8:1-10.
In those days when there again was a great crowd without anything to eat, he summoned the disciples and said, My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. If I send them away hungry to their homes, they will collapse on the way, and some of them have come a great distance." His disciples answered him, "Where can anyone get enough bread to satisfy them here in this deserted place?" Still he asked them, "How many loaves do you have?" "Seven," they replied. He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then, taking the seven loaves he gave thanks, broke them, and gave them to his disciples to distribute, and they distributed them to the crowd. They also had a few fish. He said the blessing over them and ordered them distributed also. They ate and were satisfied. They picked up the fragments left over--seven baskets. There were about four thousand people. He dismissed them and got into the boat with his disciples and came to the region of Dalmanutha.
