Peaceful Moments at a Creek

    We will be spending the next few days on the road for funeral services. My husband's uncle passed away yesterday after a long battle with cancer. I found this little park with a creek and rose garden near the funeral home. We'll stay here for a bit while we wait for my husband to vest his uncle with some of the other priests in our diocese. When a priest dies, his fellow priests clothe him in his vestments while they recite the prayers that he would normally say himself. I'm glad my husband was able to do this for his uncle. Before this year, he had never vested a priest. This will be his third time in 2021... a heartbreaking reality for our family and parish (all died from old age/longtime ailments, not you-know-what).
