Welcome Father Charlie Klinger and the Joliet Franciscan Sisters who are celebrating our sesquicentennial. Please know all of you reading this are welcome to the Mass at St. Mary today (Sunday).
Sometimes I want to get inside the washing machine and set it for the spin cycle so I can slow down a bit. My life's activity seems to fall somewhere between the tilt-a-whirl and the round-up rides at the state fair.
Last Sunday was a beautiful day. The Blessing of Animals went well. No one was bitten, no blood drawn, blessings imparted and a very happy spirit prevailed.
The Zoo Day was very entertaining. There was a legless lizard that I would swear was a snake, but I was assured there was a technical difference and although it looked like a snake, it was a legless lizard. I saw an armadillo walk by--it looked quite odd as it waddled along -- such an odd little creature. The children were very excited when they saw a bob cat and a spotted leopard. The police and fire department were there and demonstrated their equipment and the children got the opportunity to sit at the steering wheel of an enormous fire truck.
I will be in
The Lord be with you!

The Cat from
Zoo Day! Everyday
here is Zoo Day! I was not able to attend the blessing of the
animals. I knew there would be far too many dogs there. I did hear the
good news that two cats came to the blessing---
I heard about the armadillo--- you must admire God's creativity, but for sheer overall design nothing beats a cat. I must point out too that the library shelf marked Great Works by Armadillos has one book and it's about leprosy. The book wasn't even written by an armadillo -- it was about them. They can carry leprosy. Egad!! I would never bring something so ghastly in the rectory. But enough. I'm glad Zoo Day went well.
Peace From The Cat Who Is Happy To Be A Cat
