We often talk about what was different what was the same as our home parishes of Saint Rose of Lima and Maternity of Mary in St Paul. In Osceola Markie loved how Jesus was carved of wood on the cross. In Brainerd the kids enjoyed hearing stories from Africa from the Priest there and in Maine the children all commented how small and cozy the church was. In Maine a parishioner gave us one of our favorite compliments "you are from MN? I guess your children really are above average as Garrison says!" We loved that one.
Tonight in the spirit of summer we are visiting the Cathedral. I look forward to the time of prayer and the reminder that where ever we are we can always find a place to come together as a family and pray.
