Almost time to leave the parish

Right now I am in the middle of writing my last bulletin column for the summer and I am trying to wrap up my time this coming Friday. It is hard to believe that two months have gone so quickly and soon I will be heading up to St. Paul to go to Venezuela for ten days to visit the mission that is operated by the Archdiocese of St. Paul/ Minneapolis.

In the past two weeks we have had three funerals and each of them have been particularly difficult. Today there was a funeral for a still-born child and it is never easy to go to a funeral but to have two little ones never see the light of day and to see a 50 year old take his last breaths hits you and makes you realize that God is in charge.
