A Mass for my Mother

Today the mass I had scheduled to be said for my mom's soul finally came up almost a year after requesting it (we have a large parish), and I was able to get my husband and youngest son to go with me, which was a delight.  We had a wonderful homily from our diocesan vocations director, Fr. Brian McMaster.

Father McMaster

What a gifted speaker he is! Made me wish I could rush off to sign up for the priesthood myself, lol! I certainly hope he gets through to our many young people. I pray that God will increase vocations to the priesthood and religious life, especially in our young people. There is nothing more beautiful that a committed young sister or priest or deacon or monk, etc, glowing with God's love.

Life is a hard thing a lot of the time and we have received a crushing blow a few days ago as I mentioned in my last post, but somehow we must carry on.  I just need to remember to stay wrapped in Mary's mantle, to lean on the everlasting arms of Jesus, and to call upon my guardian angel for his help as well. 


  1. Praying for your Mom.

    Also praying for your husband and for all of you.

    May God bless you and be with you always.

    1. Thank you so much Victor--it means the world to me.
