It's Friday morning back in good ole Pocahontas, AR and my parents have been without power since Tuesday night and they don't expect it to be restored anytime soon. I called and they are doing fine with a natural gas fireplace and cooker. A story can be read here. Please pray for those who are not as fortunate.
I just got an update - photo from home. The folks were able to get a generator, so things aren't as bleak. The photo is from our front porch.
Within the hour a funeral Mass will be said for the repose of Sharon Sloan who died on the 28th. She was a parishioner at Holy Cross & St. Stanislaus Parish. Please pray for her repose and the comfort of her husband Phil and the entire family.
It is exam period here in the various Roman Pontifical schools. My exam takes place Monday morning. Please keep all of us student-priests and seminarians in your prayers during this time.
