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.

A Mall Santa's Prayer

Today is my first day of "helping" Santa at the mall this year. It's my fourth season.

When I first started doing this four years ago, I wrote this poem:

A Mall Santa's Prayer

As I hold each precious child
let me treat each one
with the love and care I'd show
Your most holy Son.

On my first day - a little girl bought a soft pretzel at one of those pretzel shops and brought it over to give to me. What a sweet thing to do.

No wonder I love this ministry!

I wish I could visit your store, but Montreal is a ways from Rochester. what a lovely way to express the true spirit of the Holy Season of Christ's Birth. A very Merry Christmas to you and yours. Regards from Canada,
