There's no fool like and old fool!

Many times my mother would react to one of my father's silly schemes in the house by exclaiming, "There's no fool like an old fool". This line is ringing in my head today as I suffer the effects of being on the golf course for 81 holes of golf yesterday. For the past 15 years I have joined with three others friends for an all day golf marathon. Closer to our athletic prime, we used to golf in excess of 100 holes in one day. The vagaries of age have slowed us down but 81 holes still takes quite a toll on the body.

I'll be back to blogging as per usual tomorrow (assuming I survive today - it's even hard to type!)

Just do me the kindness of offering a pray on behalf of this old fool today!

  1. Eighty-one holes? As in four-and-a-half full rounds? Not eighteen?

    LOL! Yup, even your eyelids should be stiff and sore...

  2. Lady Janus: You don't know how right you are!! Just finished three hour drive home in +41C humidex weather. 'Burnt, roasted and tender' would be a good description of my current state of being today! Time for another cold shower!! (We've not turned the air conditioning on as a cost saving to the parish... what a year to make that decision!!!)

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59.
