With all of our imperfections, we begin and end each day at the foot of the cross. It is here where our story begins and we pray it is where it will end. "Jesus said: Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light." ~Matthew 11:28-30~
Listen to God's voice at the foot of the crucifix." ~St. Gaspar del Bufaro~

Thank A Priest!
I just had to share this cute picture that 7-year old Princess drew for our Parish Priest.
Tomorrow marks the 43rd Anniversary of our Pastor's Ordination to the Priesthood. Princess came up with her own message thanking him for saying "yes" to God. This just about sums up everything, doesn't it?
I am also sharing the spiritual bouquet that we made since it was really quite simple!
2. Each member of the family decided what type of prayer offering they would make. (In our case we wanted the total to be 43 prayers for the 43 years of service)
3. Then we decorated the cover and stapled it together like a book.
4. I'm still debating about adding some glitter! Just thinking that our priests could use a little sprinkle of glitter here and there, don't you? I added glitter and rose petals, thanks to encouragement from Gardenia...Thanks, Gardenia!
**Please share any ideas that you have done to thank a priest...Would love to see and hear!**
"The priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus, when you see a priest, think of our Lord Jesus Christ!"
