I had been on vacation for awhile, and returned last week. Most of what's going on in my parish is the usual, end of summer, kind of thing.
The death of Sen. Kennedy is in the news. Thank goodness they're not making the funeral public! If I were preaching it, it would be difficult to come up with a eulogy.
Today is the feast of St. Monica, mother of St. Augustine. She had to deal with a straying son. Her prayers were answered when he converted. What joy that would have been to a mother's heart! What graces the Church received through his later ministry!
