Original 'observational' comic David Brenner dies at 78 - Celebrity News - Entertainment - Catholic Online

An appearance by David Brenner on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson was always a 'must see' event for me. His humour was founded on the principle that laughter could be mined from the everyday, mundane events in people's lives. This wisdom has always inspired me. He will be missed.



Rest in peace Mr. Brenner... and thank you for imparting the gift of laughter and perspective to a grateful generation.

    1. Larry: MANY THANKS for this link. My brother Michael held the record for being the smallest baby born premature (1.1 lb) until some time in the mid 1980's and this year he turns 58. (His twin, James sadly only lived a few days before dying) Even though Mike was born a little more than a year before me, he only made it home from the hospital a few scant weeks before I made my arrival. The video sure helps me get some perspective on what a struggle those months must have been for been for him and my parents. I am grateful for such a wonderful St. Patrick's Day gift as seeing this video. Thank you.

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
