Up Up and Away

Monday greetings from Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Spent the weekend in Albuquerque at the 40th Annual Balloon Fiesta. I went to Mass yesterday at Most Holy Rosary Parish. Great music, wonderful preaching, sang the new translation, warm community.

Just wanted to check in and share some photos I took over the weekend. Up each morning at 3:30 to make it to the field for the "Mass Ascension."


Just amazing.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.

Jerry, your pictures of balloons soaring aloft give some sense of how I expect to feel at Mass on Nov. 27.

(No! Not terrified! Ecstatically UPLIFTED by the new corrected translation!)

In Louisville, KY, the Great Balloon Race is a part of Derby Week. It is quite a spiritual moment watching the balloons rise in the early morning sunrise. Your pictures are beautiful.
