2nd Sunday of Easter
Increasingly, we live in an age in which trust has become a scarce commodity.
We all have a little bit of the Apostle, Thomas in us.
Many, when they think of faith, see it as something that is cut and dried; we believe or we do not believe.
Actually, for most, it is something that must be renewed several times in life.
Questioning is an important part of spiritual growth and challenges result in strengthened acceptance.
When Thomas touched the wounds of Jesus, love flowed out and only then did Thomas fully believe
“My Lord and my God!”

While shopping in a food store, two nuns happened to pass by the beer, wine, and liquor section.
One asked the other if she would like a beer.
The second nun answered that, indeed, it would be very nice to have one, but that she would feel uncomfortable about purchasing it.
The first nun replied that she would handle that without a problem.
She picked up a six-pack and took it to the cashier.
The cashier had a surprised look, so the nun said, 'This is for washing our hair.'
Without blinking an eye, the cashier reached under the counter and put a package of pretzel sticks in the bag with the beer.
'The curlers are on me.'


For my “Farewell Party” (Nov. 4), I am deeply grateful to so many people: Father Tim Shea who convinced me that I just could not “go quietly” and for his generous spirit, his gifts and even his humour; Christine Mears for so many reasons; my Sisters in the Catholic Women’s League - Shirley Levac, Hanna Lahaie, Jean Richards, Cecile Gould, Cathy Townsend, Teresa Bouvier, Claudette Richardson, Roseanne Hogan, Madeline Halladay who have always supported me and my deepest gratitude for one heck of a party- the room was a beautiful painting; Marguerite Laudanski for the gorgeous cake; the Halladay girls, Jessie and Jodie for their always heavenly music; Bob Bouvier for his help; for all those who prepared the delicious feast; the Knights of Columbus Pat Stenson & Gary Richards for their kind words; Roy Gould for the lovely photo album; the spiritual bouquet; for the priests who came, I know how busy they are and it meant a lot to me; to the Parishioners of Holy Name of Jesus - thank you for your love the past 22 years; thank you to my friends and family for their support.  Thank you to Phil Henderson and Des Hensman for their gracious presentation of the gift from the Knights and their humbling words.  Thank you everyone for cards, gifts and most of all for your love and prayers.  I will treasure your friendship and November 4th for the rest of my life.
                                                      Love and Prayers,    Karla
