UPDATE:: Well had a few questions this morning about this post so here some more... I am right now headed to Tampa and will be taking a cruise for 5 nights. Fr. Luke Ballman will be celebrating the HDOO Mass on Monday evening. Thanks Luke. I forgot my camera (and all I did to get a new one and easy to travel with...arggghhhh) but I did remember the batery charger for the camera, darn. Anyway, now I am off and will see you all Saturday evening at Mass. Peace

I know a few bloggers that have taken Advent off...maybe I should have done that, but I did not. Well as you know it has been quite busy during Advent. I am getting flack from Jack G. who is a faithful reader, so I am going to stay up late tonight and post of few fun things. When I get the chance I will put up a few photos from my rapid trip to the west coast (more on that later). So here is my first fun thing: quite a video of a guy going nuts at a car wash, not sure what happened but it is not so good for that carwarsh...enjoy

Today is the anniversary of my father's birth, he would have been 69 years old. But on a greater scale today is the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Today can also go down in history for the first time I celebrated Mass & preached in Spanish (not much to write home about, but more than enough to blog about). The homily was the same text, first in Spanish and then in English, again it was not much but it felt like an eternity preaching. It seemed to go well--and by it I mean my massacre of the Spanish language (no it really means the liturgy). It was great to see the church full, lots of my Hispanic, Anglo, & African-American children were in attendance. What a truly blessed man I am. Here are some photos of the fun. Enjoy
Where are you???
Well it has been some week. Monday meetings all day downtown, then back for the Penance service at Holy Trinity. Tuesday, more meetings downtown, then back for our Penance service. Today, Wednesday, busy all day with meetings, and preparation for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. It has been busy and tomorrow will not be much different, as I will be teaching all day at OLV. I will get a few post out there tonight, after signing about 650 letters to the parish. Enjoy

Hey the Parish needs some help. If you go here, you will see that the marker for St. Matthew is just down the street...but Google now allows for edits to be made, which is why I need your help. If you have a Google account you would go and move the marker for the parish, please! I would really appreciate it. thanks

Ok I know Mega-lo-mart is not real but I do not want to say the other company name here, so...
Next time you think the other mart is so great, remember Deborah Shank, and the people behind the mart. What ever happened to TG&Y, and the halcyon days of my youth.
