Spent the weekend in Tonganoxie, Kansas at the 50th wedding anniversary of my wife's aunt and uncle. It is nice to see that reaching such a milestone is still celebrated in portions of this country. And with Karen and I just reaching 23 years, I am more amazed by this important day. I pray that Joe and Carol have many more years together.
We also went to Mass at the local parish. Fr Mark gave one of the best homilies I have heard in a very long time and his joy with life made my heart sing.
OnSaturday the Archdiocese of Atlanta ordained new Permanent Deacons. I was not able to attend for obvious reasons, but was with them in spirit. It makes me reflect on my own call to this ministry and where I will be three years from now. Only God knows.
