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.

What sports should be about

Matt Ziesel, a freshman with Down Syndrome at Benton High School in Saint Joseph, Missouri, loves football. He suits up for every game, and finally got a chance to play in the closing seconds of a game against Maryville High School. His team was down a couple of touchdowns, and the "Matt play" was run with the knowledge of the Maryville coach and players.

Good sportsmanship.

Awesome story. I can only imagine the pride that he - and his dad - shared at that moment.
