Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

Oversleeping Again

I overslept the 6:30 a.m. Mass at my own parish this morning, and so went to the parish by my office for the 8:00 a.m. Mass instead. Even before he could be seen, the door was heard to clatter loudly, complete with the tell-tale clumsy shuffling and huffing and puffing. There was a whiff of cigarette smoke and I knew it was the Smelly Man; without even intending to, I smiled. God is so merciful.
