Last week we began in a more formal way our Inquiry period of the RCIA. We have a very talented person who tapes the sessions and then places them on the internet. She sent me the links. I have two posted. One is an abbreviated session from last Thursday, our first night and another is a catechetical session some time in the last two or three years. I hate watching myself and my Italian mother is responsible for my hand motions! Yikes! I'm very grateful to Jerry Schmitt our RCIA coordinator and the hoards of people we have on our team. It is wonderful!

Of course when one sees oneself on video, one gets a dose of reality in terms of how others sees one, doesn't one? As for me, I see myself as I am, what I will look like in my glorified body in heaven, as I am now and yes the the Nile is not just a river in Egypt!

Absolutely no change in appearance from the mid 1980's until now; God is good!

I am sure you have heard this joke before:
Q - What does an italian with a broken hand have?
A - A speech impediment.

Hate to say it Father, but you looked shiftier back then. The graying and glasses have made you look more respectable.

I tried and tried to come up with something clever to say about the young Fr McDonald and the older Fr McDonald. This was so great!!! :-)

Shifty?! I think he looks happy and enthused--and like children of Italian heritage I grew up with.
