Today is the feast of the Annunciation – I hope that your celebration was a joyful one. Our celebration here at the seminary (dedicated to Saint Mary of the Lake, by the way!) was a good one, celebrating the solemnity at our main chapel. Good things!
You might notice as well that I’ve changed the blog a tad. I put up a virtual memorial to Matty after his death – the pop-up message that he had on his blog. Matty had a great devotion to Mary and it seemed some consolation that he died on the feast of the Mother of Sorrows. Its been a year and seven months, and on this feast of the Annunciation, I think its appropriate to bring this part of my remembrance to a close.
I think I’ll leave the message on the blog, but in a less overt way. I’d ask that you continue to pray for the repose of the souls of Matty Molnar & Jared cheek, as well as for their families and friends.
Peace to you on this feast of Our Lady!
