I’ve got so much to do around here and have so much on my mind that one of the items in my mind leaked and I lost it.
I was told, a few weeks ago, and reminded yesterday, that one of our parishioners was celebrating their 50th Anniversary and wanted me to give them a blessing at the 5:30 p.m. Mass.
Well, we had First Communion today. I wanted to introduce any of the children who made their First Communion this morning. None of them were there tonight at the 5:30 p.m. Mass. I had to get five “volunteers” before Mass to help because there were only two ushers who showed up. There were so many people missing because the weather was so nice.
And, in all of that, I forgot the couple. I felt awful. I blessed them after Mass but we couldn’t make a big deal out of it. I told them that I was going to mention something when I have the 5:30 p.m. in two weeks. I hope to God I don’t forget then.
Steve & Gloria, I’m sorry. Happy Anniversary!
