After Mass this morning the parishioner who changes the marquee sign outside the church told me she was going to change the sign. This was nothing uncommon, as she does a fine job of keeping the community posted on local happenings.
But this she added a few words, saying, "But you can't change it."
Naturally, this peaked my interest, but I told her I wouldn't look until she was finished.
After finishing a bit of work inside the office, I stepped outside to see what the sign read. When I saw it, I had a big laugh:
I approve. When Father House arrives, perhaps the sign will read, "Aloha, Makua," makua being Hawaiian for Father. They called Father Damien, "Makua Kamiano."
