...for a son I love and admire so much. Yesterday morning at Mass he served as lector, reading the Sacred Word with dignity and his clear, beautiful voice. He was also essential in our small family choir leading the music for mass, what with the new translation's settings and new challenges. Incredible what a year and a half of college choral music training can do do a young male's voice.
And at the day's end, as we stood with our neighbors and friends and welcome the new year with expressions of gratitude, prayers, purposes and resolutions, he was the first to speak up, confidently, and among his resolutions he showed earnestness in working towards higher grades. May God bless you and continue guiding you, dear son!
