Happy Feast of Our Lady of the Angels! This past week we were blessed to have a visit from Fr. Mariusz, Fr. Leo, and Fr. Gabriel, Franciscan Friars of the Renewal — the men in gray. Fr. Mariusz is celebrating his fortieth anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood this year (in conjunction with the Year for Priests), so we threw him a little party to honor his priestly service. Sr. Fidelis outdid herself once again with another awesome cake, pictured above. We all think she should go into business! We plied Fr. Mariusz with questions so he shared with us some of his best priestly memories. He served as a diocesan priest for the Diocese of Newark for 25 years and then after much prayer and discernment, entered the CFRs 15 years ago. With this background, Father’s wisdom is great indeed and happily, we have been the beneficiaries of his priestly support and friendship. After forty years, Father told us emphatically he LOVES being a priest! Thank You, Jesus!
