Today was pretty newsworthy.
First, as we all saw coming, John Paul II is now officially “Blessed”. Love that great man. I’m so glad he was the pope of my youth. So glad I got to be in his presence while he was alive.
Second, the surprise announcement that Osama bin Laden is dead! I can’t believe it’s almost been 10 years since 9/11. Wow.
The third thing was also a surprise…our priest is going to scrub in for Mary’s open-heart surgery on Wednesday! One of the surgeons is also a parishioner, and she had asked Fr awhile back if he wanted to watch a surgery. Well, this seems to be the perfect one, right?
This picture was taken after the Easter Vigil. Father Kastl loves Mary so much, and she loves him too!
