Finding of the True Cross

Today is the Feast of the Finding of the True Cross... and our 16th anniversary of moving to St. Mary's! Hard to believe it's been 16 years... I remember when being here for ten years seemed like it was long time. :)

We're on the third day in this month of Our Lady and on the third day of a Rosary novena at Riverside Park, for the intention of putting our town in the hands of Our Lady and for the sanctification of St. Mary's. The turnout has been very good, including a number of parishioners from Immaculate Conception Church. It's a wonderful, beautiful idea and will undoubtedly reap great benefits for St. Mary's.

Three weeks of school remain!! To be specific, there are 12 more days of regular classes and 3 days of exams... graduation is 3 weeks from this Saturday. I'll actually have finished at least two years of college! :) It's maybe not such a great achievement by today's standards, but I'm proud of myself. I know that these two years of college have profited me a great deal, both in lessons learned in the classroom and lessons learned outside of it.

But speaking of lessons learned, I'm supposed to be learning my history for the quiz day after tomorrow! ;) So it's adieu for now... God bless!
