Day of Penance and Personal Grief



Gentle Reader: I will be offline today. I'm spending the day in fasting and prayer to make reparation for the enactment of legalized abortion in the United States. I'm also attending a Mass for the repose of the soul of my beloved brother, Wayne, who died 20 years ago today at the age of 17.

I recommend the soul of Wayne to Our Lady's prayers. Cathy - if you don't mind my asking how did he die?

Prayers coming from me, too, Cath.

I wish I would have known when I was at Mass today.

I'll mark it for next year.

I thought of your brother as I fell asleep last night - he reminds me so much of my brother Skip - he died in 1990. But he looked alot like your brother at the age he is in the photo.
