Today we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord.
Today, I also want to ask our readers to keep a particular family in your prayers; they've been longtime friends of my family; I've grown up with these children in the parish of my childhood. This father of 6 was killed yesterday in a logging accident. His name is Emil; he was a good and gentle man. The family has been preparing for the oldest daughter's wedding. The oldest son is in seminary. The youngest is still in grade school. I ache for the pain they must be feeling and ask that God uses it for the conversion of souls.
