From the Pastor

Third Sunday Advent and Christmas Masses

12-17-2017Fr. Don Kline, V.F.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

My friend, Fr. Richard, recently shared with me a true story about a university-sponsored trip that he experienced as a college student. Part of the trip included a dinner with alumni at what he described as a “posh country club”. You have to understand that Fr. Richard has this amazing knack for recognizing food from a great distance away…it is sort of a special gift that he is constantly perfecting (I’m joking, sort of). As he stepped off the chartered bus, the first thing he noticed was the savory smell of steaks on a grill.

While we both enjoy our fair share of fast food, there is nothing like a home-cooked meal. Fr. Richard noticed that his mouth immediately started to water like an old hound dog. Then he remembered that it was Friday and it was Lent. And his eyes started to well up with tears. Okay, I made that last part up.
