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.

Penance services

My parish, St. Theodore's in Gates (a suburb of Rochester), held two Penance services this week for Lent. They were on top of the weekly Saturday Sacrament of Reconciliation.

I went to the Tuesday night service. Somewhere between 200 and 300 people were there. It was very moving.

We Catholics are lucky that we have such opportunities for healing and growth.
