Good morning to all. We had a really nice evening last night in the Chapel with the monthly Men's Night of Prayer and Reflection. (As you know the men get together every month on the third Tuesday of the month for adoration, instruction and reconciliation.) Frs. Herbert and Mario gave the talks. Attendance was down a bit last night with only about 30 men being present. However it was good to welcome a couple of new faces and to welcome back a couple who hadn't been with us for a few months. A special treat of the evening was a platter of freshly made brownies that Bro. Damien sent down for all to enjoy during the social hour that follows the prayer. They were delicious. Fr. Mario also brought down the remains of his birthday cake which was quickly devoured by all (it was a well saturated rum cake from d'Orsis Bakery in Peabody). Ssshhhhh, don't tell anyone, but Fr. Mario just turned 67.
Don't forget to keep Fr. Mario in your prayers today, because he will be undergoing surgery on his eyes at around noontime at the Lahey Clinic.
