a healthy reminder

Dear Family and Friends,

I’m on my way back to Cincinnati from Sacred Heart Apostolic School in Rolling Prairie, Indiana. It was wonderful spending the last week there in my old stomping grounds. On Sunday, the feast of the 3 Kings, we were inundated with snow, so I had a chance to help with the plowing. Great fun!

Then today, I thought I’d try to make it back to Cincinnati. The roads were pretty bad, and there were several jams waiting for vehicles to be cleared. I got a little impatient at one, but then was helped by the friendly-reminder-scripture-verse on the back of the truck I sat behind for half an hour: “But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus – the work of telling others the news about the wonderful grace of God.” (Acts 20:24) That’s my life in a nutshell! It inspired me to go and talk to the people waiting in the other cars – turns out that truck in front of me was full of stuntmen and their portable stunt ramp!

The Holy Spirit worked things out so I stopped in Indianapolis for the night, and a kind friend is putting me up. Hopefully the roads will be better tomorrow so I’ll make it for the big first mass Friday at the school!

God bless you,
Father Kevin
