Going home

In just a few short hours I will board a plane to return home for the summer and about this prospect my heart is glad. Whether I have packed what I may need over the next two months remains to be seen (packing for two months is much more difficult than packing for a week).

Even as my heart rejoices to be going home I am saddened by the news of the death of the secretary of my boyhood parish, one of the kindest and gentlest women I have been privileged to know and always with a bright smile on her face. By God's good grace, I will arrive in Quincy the day before her funeral Mass, which I plan to concelebrate. Please join me in praying that she will now smile brightly before the face of God to rejoice forever in his love.
