The Lord giveth…

A few shout outs

To my youngest son Tony – who finished up his 4 years at Vianney this week and will “walk” the stage next Saturday to make it official.  Oh, and my last tuition payment was made this week.

To Fr. Tim Kenney as he celebrates his last few days at Vianney High School.  It was Fr. Tim and his family who offered Tony a scholarship during Tony’s 4 years at Vianney.  Many thanks and many blessings on your next role with the Marianists.  Sarah and I can’t thank you and your family enough for all you’ve done not only for Tony, but Jerome, Richard and ALL the Vianney family as well.

To my nephew Stephen Schumacher.  Stephen will be ordained a Transitional Deacon today at the Cathedral Basilica.  God willing and the creek don’t rise, he will be ordained into the priesthood this time next year.  Say a prayer for Stephen and his family today.  Sarah and I would love to be at the ordination but…

And the Lord taketh away…

Please pray for Bill Parks, Jr., a young man who passed away earlier this week and leaves behind his wife and three young children.  Sarah and I will be at his funeral Mass today.  Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him…

Blessed be the Lord.

Today’s Psalm kind of sums up all the emotions for today…

R. (2a) Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.
R. Alleluia.  To you Stephen Schumacher…

Sing joyfully to the LORD, all you lands;
serve the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful song.
R. Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.
R. Alleluia.  And to the family of Bill Parks…
Know that the LORD is God;
he made us, his we are;
his people, the flock he tends.
R. Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.
R. Alleluia.   And to you Tony Dorhauer and Fr. Kenney…
The LORD is good:
his kindness endures forever,
and his faithfulness, to all generations.
R. Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.
R. Alleluia.

Do something Great for our Lord today.

God’s will not mine be done.

Be not afraid.

Jesus, I trust in You.
