Jennifer Fulwiler: Our prayers continue for you, Dear Jennifer.
In addition to offering up prayers, I, as a member of the Church Militant, made several sacrificial efforts this week and offered them up to God for Jennifer and her baby. First, there is this one household task that I won’t mention. I really don’t like to do this task and I have been avoiding it. But, I did it and offered it up for Jennifer’s healing. I pray that Grace resulted. Also, I made my man, Gregg, the Man Pleasing Chicken recipe that Jennifer recommended back in December. Yes, I know that doesn’t sound like a big deal. But since I don’t really cook, it was sort of like me sacrificing.
Will you please do me a favor? Do the thing you have been avoiding and extend yourself in love this week. And offer it all up for Jennifer and that sweet baby boy. Thank you!

So Many Ways To Evangelize: Can we evangelize with hobbies? How about model airplanes? Gregg organized an indoor model rubber band powered plane event in our Church’s café-gym-atorium last Saturday morning. About six Dads and their kids attended and had a blast. They plan on meeting regularly and I am sure their “Eagle Squadron” flying team will grow!
Fellowship. A great ingredient for evangelization!

Tooting My Parish’s Horn: I guess I am really tooting God’s horn concerning the number of religious vocations coming from my little home parish. Are you ready? We have 3 young men in Seminary and 1 more getting ready to enter Seminary. We have 2 middle school boys already considering the Priesthood. We have 1 girl who has received her 2nd vows toward becoming a Sister, a Bride of Christ. In addition to my parish, our County has approximately 3 other young men in Seminary.
The Seminarians have been home for Christmas break and have been serving at Mass. Can I just tell you how moving it is to see our holy Pastor, our holy Deacon and 3 holy young Seminarians on the altar of our Lord? I have had to choke back the tears. God is so good. The Holy Spirit is Alive! Our cup truly overflows.
