A brief note on the recent silence regarding the blog. More than a week ago both my mom and aunt Gloria fell, hitting their heads. They were in the ER together requiring significant medical attention. My mom is fine, coming home with a bump on her head and pain in side. My aunt, however, suffered a traumatic brain injury. Following several medical procedures, including surgery, the Lord of Life called her home in the morning of the feast Saint Monica. My aunt’s Mass of Christian Burial was offered on August 30.

May I ask that you pray for God’s mercy and Gloria’s eternal memory.
