View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Shrine visit

After years of driving by the Thruway exit for the Shrine of the North American Martyrs in Auriesville N.Y., we decided to finally stop on the way back from dropping youngest daughter at college.

Just our luck: It was raining. We could not walk around all of the grounds - including the Ravine that I hear is inspiring - but what we did see was wonderful.

I took a couple of pictures in the "Coliseum" - the large church on the grounds.

We plan to go back.

Great!! It's neat to hear that you visited Auriesville. I visited there with a group of Secular Franciscans a couple of weeks ago. There is a Franciscan shrine about 4 miles west of there on the opposite bank of the Mohawk River. I love the view of the Mohawk Valley from near the coliseum.
