The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. - St. Augustine

Tuesday, March 21

The last long mission of the year is just around the corner. We leave on Friday for the Netherlands, a very secular and "free thinking" country that will bring unique challenges to the mission. It's good though. The Netherlands (also known as Holland) used to send the most missionaries to other countries in all of Europe and so it's time we help the culture turn back that way. It will be the first mission in the country in 50 years.

Everyone, especially young people, should check out the following link: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/messages/youth/documents/hf_ben-xvi_mes_20060222_youth_en.html It's the message of the Holy Father to the youth of the world on the occasion of the 21st World Youth Day, which is April 9, 2006. It's really good, inspiring, calling us to a greater knowledge and love of Sacred Scripture.

It's getting close to the end of the 6th month in the school. I can't believe there's only 3 months left. It's going too fast. Time needs to slow down.

    Dear Heather:

    Focus on each moment. Three months will arrive soon enough. Much to do today, leave tomorrow for tomorrow.
