Awesome. :-) We'll be praying.


Hmm, maybe I'd better be praying for two! I think we're just not used to you posting 2 or 3 articles all in the same century, DDW - we may've missed this one, but we'll catch up.

I'm thrilled with your news here.. if anything, we'd expect to read that some young man was inspired by you and your parish and its priest(s) to seek discernment of the Priesthood, but what a surprise God always throws our way, huh?

Her question, "How do I keep the Holy Spirit fresh after Confirmation?" is very DDW-muse-and-post-worthy material, isn't it, for it is rather timeless and ageless a question, I think. I'm sure that many RCIA folks would ask the very same.


I think this is just so inspiring; it fills me with hope, and I can well imagine what joy you must have experienced, deacon dan.

Gabrielle--indeed it was quite a joy. Just the sheer enthusiam was enough! Keep her in your prayers.

Carol, I'll try my best to post more than twice next century, but don't wait that long before looking. There will be a homily posted tomorrow morning around 10 a.m. central time.


I'll come read it right after Mass.


Well Deacon Dan your name goes before you! I was reading about you yesterday over at Justme's and now I've just finished reading this uplifting post.
Do you know there are no Permanent Deacons here in Ireland but I understand the first enrolments( for training) may be in the coming year.
A well known journal The Furrow ran a very informative article on Deacons and I have to say I personally look forward very much to their ordinations and integration into parish life here.
That unexpected response you wrote about is just typical of the Holy Spirit so full of surprises, working away and then jumping out at us when we least expect.
I'm very glad to have been introduced to this site and I don't know why I never clicked on the link that Gabrielle has @ Contemplative Haven, but I've found you now, and I thank God for it....and Justme!!
