We’ve had lots already but there are still tomatoes, squash, melons, cabbage, broccoli and those two enormous sunflowers both twice my size.

We recall, especially now, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother.

St. John Vianney Day in North Reading: Fr. Reilly and I planned today to add more opportunities for Confession to our schedule and then we recalled on whose Feast we came up with this! We also took note it is the day our hot-water heater broke and we are now taking cold showers!

Brand new Canon Lawyer, Julie Shanklin! How proud I am of Julie who today finished up at Catholic University. I’m also proud of Cardinal Seán who sponsored her. Thanks also to those at CUA. Now that’s promoting Catholic women!

New Altar at Saint Rose of Lima parish in Chelsea. Cardinal Seán blessed this beautiful altar which you see twice; once in my picture and on the cake.

My aunt, Sr. Jean Delaney, O.P., along with Sr. Marie Cleary, O.P. will be permanently moving to the Dominican motherhouse in Kentucky on Tuesday. Today our families gave them a send off at Saint Theresa’s. Now I have a great excuse to visit Kentucky!

Walked by the pizza stand at the ballpark and through the window I watched a young cook juggling a pizza coming out of the oven, just catching it before it fell. He looked around to see if anyone noticed and I caught his eye. I gave him a blessing and he gave me a smile!
