ordained!



I had the extreme honour and pleasure to be in attendance at the ordination of my dear friend. I've watched for four years as he and his wife worked together to reach this moment, offering my own meager help when I could. The Church has gained a very prayerful and charismatic Deacon who will be Her loyal servant, this I know.

Congratulations Deacon Martin Ricart III.

Jealous! I have felt that ordinations shower special graces. I'm kind of a junky... I love to attend them whenever I can.

This is cool.

Did you write something nice in their card, like, "No sex for you!"

Just kidding of course. I always have something innapropriate to say.
