Now that all the hoopla has passed...this is a piece by my brother Macario...he has now gone international...the story

we have arrived...

this was the psalm at the 1st mass we attended here in Galesburg, Il...

Responsorial Psalm
Ps 68:4-5, 6-7, 10-11

R. God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.
The just rejoice and exult before God;
they are glad and rejoice.
Sing to God, chant praise to his name;
whose name is the LORD.
R. God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.
The father of orphans and the defender of widows
is God in his holy dwelling.
God gives a home to the forsaken;
he leads forth prisoners to prosperity.
R. God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.
A bountiful rain you showered down, O God, upon your inheritance;
you restored the land when it languished;
your flock settled in it;
in your goodness, O God, you provided it for the needy.
R. God, in your goodness, you have made a home for the poor.

i've been really amazed at how much the Lord has blessed us with this move...everything from the home 2 the neighbors...all praise and all thanksgiving 2 God!!!

now i really can't wait 2 get 2 recording some new 2 come soon
