Tis the season. Father Matthew Benjamin is being transferred tomorrow. We had a great homily from him again this morning about mercy, and we know in our hearts that he deserves a "promotion" to a bigger parish with a Catholic school.
Although it was small gathering of three families, the going-away luncheon at our house was positive and upbeat. We feel so blessed by his example of holiness, his honest approach, and his wisdom during this past year and a half.
