Rejoice! A special young man, Kyle Ryan, 24, in that category of God's Special Children, made his First Holy Communion and received Confirmation on Thursday at the 5:30 Mass. His chosen name for confirmation: Francis of Assisi, the patron of animals.
Kyle is a great lover of animals as well. This is a very happy day for his grandmother, Fran Ryan. She also asked if Kyle could make his First Communion using the old communion rail. The request was granted. One section of it has been made portable and is moved up for the Latin Mass and for special requests such as this.
Keep Cia McQuaide in your prayers. After 36 years in education, Cia is retiring at the end of this academic year. Many of those years were spent in the office of superintendent of schools. Here's to a blessed retirement and many happy and healthy years of relaxation. Ad multos annos!
In my previous assignment I referred to that church

The nerve of some people! The parish secretary invaded my sacred precincts with her cell phone to take my picture for the bulletin. Some people have a desire to see the visage behind this entertaining column. I did my best to turn away, but she tricked me by the deceitful offer of treats - none were given!). I will try to disrupt the transmission of the photo, but if you see it, you'll know that I failed. I'm not as agile at 107 as I was at 23.
There is talk that my old housemate, Frannie X, is moving in soon. She showed up on the Feast of St. Francis Xavier and was named Frannie X (the letter not the Roman numeral), and as you may have guessed, I showed up on the Feast of St. Raphael. The pastor gave us those names so he would not forget our birthdays. So much for his devotion. Time to walk the perimeter of my house.

LONGS FOR YOU
The devil may try to use the hurts of life, and sometimes our own mistakes to make you feel it is impossible that Jesus really loves you. This is a danger for all of us. And so sad, because it is completely the opposite of what Jesus is really wanting, waiting to tell you. Not only that He loves you, but even more—He longs for you. He loves you always, even when you don't feel worthy. —Mother Teresa of
