Weekend in Nebraska
We spent a wonderful couple of days with Number One in Nebraska... Among many activities, he and Number Five visited the Diocesan Sacred Art Show where he bought a beautiful original. I am proud of his good taste, and of his patronage fo Sacred Art.
We also attended Holy Mass at Saint Francis in Lincoln.... truly a gem of a church! I had to visit the gorgeous Carrera marble statue of the Blessed Mother, in front of which I used to spend precious time when we lived there and attended that FSSP parish. She seemed at once familiar and welcoming, and spending a few minutes with her brought memories of the joys and sorrows I shared with her, and in her found solace. Thank you, my Mother in heaven.
This blog is dedicated to my Mother and Father, who taught me of God and of Art--and to Saint Teresa Benedicta de la Croce, our youngest child's patron saint, and about whom Husband and I learned together.
