Flag Day. Let us respect our flag and all that it stands for…and those who protect its ideals.
This morning we had over an inch of rain in a very short time. As I write this, I see many dark clouds. The rains are wonderful. My prayer is that we be protected from hail, damaging winds and sever storms. Little Falls has Dam Festival activities this coming weekend. “They say” it won’t be a complete wash-out, but rain will be a factor. I hope it doesn’t cancel the Saturday night fireworks. I like the looks and sounds of fireworks.
Last Sunday we celebrated seven Sisters who have been members of our Community for 60th years. Thank you, Sisters, for all the good you’ve done in those 420 years as Franciscans. You have touched a lot of lives!
From Sunday evening to Wednesday evening, all the Sisters and many Associates were here in Little Falls for Community meetings. We work hard all those days, so by the time we finished we were ready to celebrate! Celo and a group of musicians from the Music Center provided wonderful music for dancing during the social hour before dinner. These meetings were in preparation for a week-long session that will take place the end of September.
Happy Father’s Day to all Fathers—both living and deceased. God bless you.
The Bloodmobile will be at St. Francis Hall next week: Tuesday, -- 19th (1—7 p.m.), Wednesday --20th (1—7 p.m.) and Thursday, June 21—8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our goal is to collect 207 units of blood. May it be so. God bless all who take time to come donate this life-saving gift.
