Dear Sisters and Brothers,
I find it hard to believe that it has been a week since my accident. I have no idea how or why it happened – it just did. I am truly blessed because I did not break any bones in the fall. I just received a bump on the forehead and messed up nose. The doctor simply said “Father, you are getting old!” And that is so true!!
I am so grateful to the strangers who assisted me when I fell – to Kristen Bowden, who assisted me last Saturday and sat with me at the hospital — to the various parishioners who shopped for me and/or cooked meals for me – to the parishioners who prayed for me – to Fr. Patrick who celebrated Sunday Mass when I was out of commission. Thank you for everything. I will tell you that I am moving a little slower and a lot more carefully than I might have done before. Hopefully this will keep me safe and sound in the future. Please pray for me as I do for you.
