My Companions: Please pray with me for my Aunt Agnes Klaus (Dad's Sister) who went to her eternal reward yesterday, Monday, and for all who have gone before us in the sign of faith. And let us pray prayers of thanksgiving and praise for Dan's progress, Steve's healing and the clean bill of health for Julie McKay. As we're reminded in the Gospel for this weekend, we do not know what tomorrow will bring so we should reflect on the "treasure" we store: Lord, all we need is Your love.
Birthdays: Cameron Ross (7/26), Marie Friedemann (7/28), Ted McMurdo (7/29), Karen (Norton) Gravelyn (8/1).
Keeping in-touch: Except for the Rockies forgetting how to win baseball games, we have been enjoying "the dog days of summer." Matt's traveling and visiting family and friends and we're kept busy with friends: another trip to the mountains and the Dixons (Kim, Amanda & Matthew) stopped in for a short visit.
The Readings: Eighteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time
Comments on the Readings: Fr. Foley,
My comments: I was reminded about the vanity of "stuff" as I watched the film clip of my friend's house burn to the ground. Sure, he had insurance; sure, the "stuff" will be replaced... but it makes you think of what really matters!
May the peace of Christ be with each of you,
