Our heavenly Father loved us so much that he gave us an incredible gift that is even more powerful and glorious than the gift he gave Adam and Eve at the very beginning. God gave us himself: Jesus. And Jesus himself gives us to his Father. - from Zealous

May they rest in peace.
I am back from a little mid-winter vacation. What might have passed for a tan, faded in 48 hours. It was nice to experience some warm air and to not hear the endless ringing of the doorbell and telephone. I prayed for you all in my daily office and in the four Masses I offered on the ship.
Mark the Gala down! It's a great event and a wonderful escape from the cold and snow.
The Lord be with you!
Father Kevin F. Lutz
From the Cat at
This has been the worst winter of my life. That might be due to the fact that my long-term memory is not so good. As I was saying, when is dinner?
The pastor is back from his "no pets" vacation. I heard he was on a beach. Oh...sand. My idea of a vacation is a pillow in the sun...and a breeze...and a toy...and some Kibbles...and Bits...and a slow stupid mouse... This is what dreams are made of.
