I received a phone call from the secretary of our parish today.  She said that Monsignor wanted me to be one of the people whose feet he was going to wash on Holy Thursday evening services.

I received a phone call from the secretary of our parish today.  She said that Monsignor wanted me to be one of the people whose feet he was going to wash on Holy Thursday evening services.  I felt very honored, but very humbled to be asked.

Please pray that all goes well.  Since my surgery I've just gone back to Church, last Sunday and this Sunday, Palm Sunday.  Went very early this Sunday since I knew it would be crowded and I wanted to get a seat and a parking space.  Took my cane and did ok.  Around the house I don't need the cane any longer, but the dr. wants me to use it yet for a while when I go somewhere out of the house, especially with steps.

Marie, how nice for you.  I remember as a child we had "watch" on Maundy Thursday.  After school  my sister and I went to watch for an hour in the chapel.  The altar and surrounding area was full of flowers and the scent was wonderful.  I cannot see/smell a hyacinth today without thinking of that.

Thank you for all the prayers.  It went well.  There was a lot of walking and going up and down stairs, but I was able to do it with the cane.  Would never have been able to navigate the stairs without it.
