Over a cup of coffee, I would share with you that my wife and I were in Kennebunkport, ME, the past couple of days. We, along with her family, were celebrating the marriage of one of her nephews to a beautiful Romanian bride. The wedding ceremony took place in a Catholic parish church in Kennebunk (a different town). One the bride’s siblings, a Catholic priest from Romania, concelebrated, at the wedding Mass.
It is in celebrating sacraments, such as Marriage, such as Baptism, such as the Eucharist; that I always tell people we are witnessing something “awesome!” The power of God’s love is being manifested before us; and the transformative power of that love. With eyes of faith, is something to behold. With a heart that is open, it is something wondrous to experience.
After the wedding came the reception, where a good time was had by all. (Oh yeah!!)
Over a cup of coffee, I would tell you how concerned I am getting over this coming presidential election. There have some nasty elections in our past; going back to the founding of the Republic. But amount of anger, the bad blood that is being shown between the two major candidates, and their factions; heightened by the social media. It makes one fearful that the country may not come back together after a winner is declared. All one do, I guess, is to get out there, vote, and pray that the Father of Nations will watch over us; and summon the “better angels of our nature,” and bring healing and hope to us all.
Well, the paper cup is empty; I am in a hotel lobby, typing this up on an IPhone. (I really wish I had better coordinated thumbs for this!). See you next time over a cup of coffee.

Thank you once again for the refreshing cup of coffee. Indeed it is only in the purest manifestations of LOVE can we see HOPE in this darkening world. God’s Love as we look to HIM for the HIGHEST in what He alone can impart to humans, will we see the Lord of the Nations truly rule and reign. Prayer and standing absolutely for our faith and our truth found only in Jesus Christ. May God indeed bless the union of the bride and groom.
Thank you very much for your comment. Peace.
I share your worries…
