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 Papal Blessing in Auriesville

On the way back from seeing youngest daughter graduate, the Good Looking One and I stooped at the the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs in Auriesville (near Albany).

To our delight, we found out the Shrine is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, and in honor of that Pope Benedict XVI bestowed his Apostolic Blessing upon the Staff and All Pilgrims for 2010. That included us!

If you have never been to the Shrine of Our Lady of Martyrs, it's worth the stop - even more so now this year.
