2. Great Adventure
We’re down here in New Jersey visiting with relatives. Special thanks to my sister-in-law, who took three of my kids and her own kids to Great Adventure yesterday and, judging from the many texts I got from them, they had a great time.
3. Funny Homily Story
I wanted to share a funny homily story that the priest told at daily Mass the other day, one that illustrates how our actions often speak louder than our words. A man was driving a car and he came to a yellow stop. Instead of rushing through the intersection, he slowed then stopped. The woman in the car behind him slammed on the breaks and got out of the car and started screaming and yelling at the man because he had stopped and she had expected to make it through the yellow light. A police officer was nearby and arrested the woman, who was taken to jail, fingerprinted and detained for sometime. Finally, after an hour or so, the police officer returned and told the woman that there had been a misunderstanding and she was free to go. The woman was perplexed. Why was there a misunderstanding? The policeman explained: “Well, on the back of your car were a “Choose Life,” “Pray the Rosary,” and “Follow me to Mass” bumper stickers…I was sure that you had stolen the car.”
4. Avgolemono SoupThe other day I had the extreme pleasure of tasting a unique and flavorful soup called Avgolemono Soup, a traditional Greek Chicken and Lemon soup. Here’s a recipe for Avgolemeno Soup I found online. This is my new favorite soup.

6. Chaplet of Divine Mercy
I love reciting the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Most days, I offer this chaplet for a person who will die that day. It’s a beautiful prayer. To learn more about it, check out EWTN’s website.
