A Moment's Rest
The past six days have been an incredibly difficult and emotional time for all of us at St. Mary's. This morning the formal grieving process came to a close with the memorial mass for Father Tony, celebrated by over 112 priests, and the transfer of his body from our Chapel to its final resting place in Guam.
Tomorrow afternoon, after resting my body, mind and soul, I hope to be able to share my thoughts and reflections on Father Tony's final journey and the manner in which we said good bye to God's faithful servant.
Tonight however I cannot share this story with you, as my heart is heavy and my body tired. I can tell you however, that I go to bed renewed and strengthened in my vocation and filled with an incredible thirst for the Lord. Please know that I am forever grateful to all of you who have kept me in your prayers this week and every week. May God continue to bless you and your families.
