Wow! Has it been that long?

I guess I've been busy or uninspired or something. I haven't posted in over a year! Where do I start?

Things are moving along here. Nice to have one's own place! That said, I have discovered lately that it is of little consolation to us who are living in the other 5% of the country that AT&T Mobility covers 95% of the country. I'm asking myself why I need to buy a $150 microcell in order to use the phone!

It's been a long year in some ways. The struggle of getting a building project off the ground when some are interested in functionalism... They wonder why it is that we can't just build a church that is an aluminum structure. They wonder why it should be shaped like a cross (i.e., cruciform); it costs too much money to have all of those angles, they say. Are they serious? Do they really think the House of God and Gate of Heaven should be modeled after a barn????

Then, there's the whole issue of wondering why we can't build the church on the outskirts of town, where there's more land. Yeah there's more land because it's not populated! The idea is that people can easily get to the church, so it should be in (or as close a possible to) the center of town. By the way, the ones who want it on the outskirts are not the ones who come outside of Sunday! There is daily Mass folks, as well as the possibility of adoring our Lord and King present in the Tabernacle!

Keep up the good fight, Father. We will continue to pray and support nothing but the best for our new parish campus, especially the Church!
