Odds and Ends

It is funny how of all the pictures you take of your family, the ones at the beach always come out nicely. Here is a picture from this past winter. The seagulls would practically grab the food right out of your hands.

Then we have a couple pictures from the kids' annual Passion Play. (This is the fifth or sixth year. Each year we have a few more participants.) This year number 3 son played Christ, his first chance to play Christ. As you can see from the group picture, several families participated. Read more about our Passion Play here.


We had a couple of friends over for dinner on Sunday. One of them painted for us a marvelous icon of Christ being taken down from the cross to be put in the arms of his mother. The artist says the painting of icons is how he prays. It was a wonderful time with some great discussions and a little entertainment from the children.


And of course today is the celebration of the Queenship of Mary. It is awesome to think how our Mother, and she truly is our mother, is also the queen of heaven. It is a consolation, to be sure-unfortunately one that our Protestant brothers cannot share-(the consolation, that is, not of course the fact.)

On this wonderous memorial, let us pray for each other-Oremus pro invicem!
