It's been a week since the plane crash and I still can't wrap my head around the fact that he is gone. He is one of the finest people I've ever known. Seems like we've lost a lot of people like that in the last few years.
"May the angels welcome you to Paradise. May the martyrs greet you on your way. May you see the face of the Lord this day, Alleluia! Alleluia!"
Word of the day:
Friday of the Seventeenth week in Ordinary Time
Today the Church celebrates : St. Peter Chrysologus, Bishop and Doctor of the Church (406-450)
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 13:54-58.
He came to his native place and taught the people in their synagogue. They were astonished and said, "Where did this man get such wisdom and mighty deeds? Is he not the carpenter's son? Is not his mother named Mary and his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? Are not his sisters all with us? Where did this man get all this?" And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his native place and in his own house." And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith.
