Today was a bit of a sad day, as days go. I had to go to the bank to close the accounts of Father Pendolphi and move the money into an Estate Account to pay the final bills and keep the utilities on until his parents condo is sold. I need to go out there once a week to check on the place in Pickerington. It's clean (he was very orderly), but I need to clean out cupboards, the fridge (mostly empty) and dust things off. If you like cleaning and would like to give me a hand, I'd be grateful. Leave a message with Ann in the office.

Get ready for 2015! It's our Sesquicentennial. Much planning had been done and more is to come to make the Jubilee Year a happy and memorable occasion. I talked to a company about re-plating the historic candlesticks on the altar. They are a bit dull. I could ship them out and have them back before Advent, however, if someone was interested in funding this project, perhaps a class from St. Mary high school? Just a thought. Ask for a price, I will not scare you.
Have you noticed that visitors aren't expecting those prayers after Mass? They start to leave and then retreat to pray with us. There is the perfect chance to welcome new people to St. Mary. If you're not sure what to say, tell them that we are praying for vocations and especially for the priest who will give us the Last Rites. It's a nice way to make new friends. We might pick up a few families. Welcome all guests as you would welcome Christ Himself.
The Lord be with you!

There seems to be less and less sunlight to nap in. I have experienced this a few times before. The only thing good about it is the arrival of trees in the house for me to climb. I know that this is a ways away, but I look forward to breaking the glass cat toys that hang from its branches.
Here is your cat quiz: How long is it from two

We should let no day pass without getting closer to Mary. She knows our needs, and her maternal heart wants to love and care for us. Like the moon that points gratefully to the sun for its light, Marys purpose is to point us to Jesus and the Church and the needs of others.
