In October of 2008, after serving three years as a Naval Officer, I was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. This blog chronicles my pilgrimage through life and towards the Roman Catholic priesthood.
That's an awesome picture. Worth a thousand words.
There they are!Ha Ha.
Thanks for the laugh, Philip!L
The one on the far left is me, though I discerned out. It was taken down in Kansas City, MO a few years ago on the occasion of the profession of a couple of the Benedictine's of Mary, Queen of Apostles. That marquee was in front of some Protestant building near the parish where the profession was being held, so we walked down for a photo op. Fun times...
That's funny, Philip-I love it!Barb in NY
Men in Hats...a whole new meaning. :)
They're progressing in the right direction! LOVE it!
God bless you and your seminary brethren!
Terrific picture.Andrew Delaney, the son of a friend of mine, was a seminarian for the Diocese of Madison WI who died several years ago of an inoperable brain cancer. Andy's dad Tom enjoys telling a story that he was at an event and the Bishop complemented his unusual tie. Tom said "That's a second class relic! It belonged to my son Andy!" Tom reports joyfully that the bishop rolled his eyes! But there is actually a modest local movement for Andy's canonization and even a priest who wanted to be postulator of his cause. In another case, a woman ill (with cancer?) was loaned a pair of Andy's pyjamas to sleep in, and was cured. The pyjamas were returned, but reluctantly, because, the woman's husband said a little mischievously, "now we're trying to conceive a child!"
