Saturday, September 17, 2005

This morning in the Cathedral rectory attended our parish’s Festival of Faith event on Mary and the Saints. It was very moving to hear particulars of Mary’s love for God and (especially) the poor and saints’ and (will-be saints’) devotion to Mary. I now know that I can be very quiet in the face of such devotion. Met for the first time PL, a writer who is working on a movie about Kateri Tekakwitha.


This afternoon our Cathedral director of music and organist WGO married KD, who writes for the diocesan paper The Evangelist. The bishop presided, and Father P concelebrated. Mrs. Kim Harris was the cantor.

Today is also LARKfest. O is babysitting, so I agreed to be at home when J, who wanted to hear a band, dropped off S and V for a little while. V is 2½. Seeing a picture of O taken when she was three or four, he said, “That’s O—.” Did someone tell him or did he recognize O? S, who is 4½, explained to me, “That’s O— when she was young.” “Does it look like her?” “Yes, but she was young.” J reminds me that the Rolling Stones are in town. Wonder how parking will be tonight.
