Thursday greetings on this final day of 2015.
Just checked Facebook and found these two photos posted by Lee Gwozdz, who is the president of American Federation Pueri Cantores. Lee headed the delegation of a thousand singers from the United States to Rome for the international festival. This must have been the thrill of a lifetime for Lee and these young singers. Check this out!
My heart is filled with joy for these music makers.
And don't you just love the lanyard around the pope's neck. I wonder if the name tag says "Pope Francis" or "Papa Francesco?" As if he needed a name tag for people to check to see who he actually is! This is hilarious, but what a moment, don't you think?
Be sure to read Paul French's comment on the previous post.
On that very bright note, I want to wish you all a very happy New Year. As the page of the calendar turns, my heart is filled with a longing for a lasting peace, for an increased dedication to dialogue, and for an outpouring of God's mercy for you, me, and our weary world.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
