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.

St. Anthony - a day late, but great!

I went to morning Mass today and got a surprise.

Yesterday was the Feast of St. Anthony of Padua, but since it fell on a Sunday the Feast was superseded. So they decided to mark the day at this morning's Mass.

Several ladies dressed in Franciscan robes processed with a decorated statue of St. Anthony - lilies in hand. Father preached about him, and at the end of Mass they distributed bread in his honor. I got two small loaves - one for me and one for the Good Looking One.

Thank you Lord.
