    Does PA offer an "enhanced" drivers license? We can get them here in NY and that is all that is required to cross the border into Canada. It makes it very convenient.

    You are justifiably proud of your son! I will keep him and his vocation in my prayers - the Church could use a few more rugby-playing Priests!

    Yes, like Cardinal Pell, also a former rugby player. (Mike is also an Eagle Scout and is a real pro at tying knots.)

    Hi all,
    I'm turning 50 in early February and I told my wife that "all I want for my birthday" is to go see frater Silvan in California. We haven't seen him in six months.

    Fortunately we found some really great (i.e., cheap) airline tickets for that weekend and hotel room and a cheap car rental.

    Unfortunately I came down with pneumonia this past week.

    Please say a prayer that we don't have to cancel this trip due to health issues.
    Thanks,
    Brian

    Sorry to hear you are not feeling well Brian. Get on those inhalers and antibiotics! Will keep you in prayer.

    Thank you all for your prayers!

    We arrived safely at John Wayne Airport in Irvine CA yesterday afternoon and made it to the Norbertine's St. Michael's Abbey in Silverado CA last night for Eucharistic Holy Hour and Compline. Frater Silvan sat with us but was not able to chat with us. (The Norbertine chant is just incredible here.) We made it back for 7:00am Mass this morning and Fr. Ambrose, the Novice master, met us after Mass with frater Silvan so we could talk briefly and get introduced.

    The Abbey grounds here are amazing. This place is like a tropical resort combined with a beautiful California style Abbey. What a Blessing to be here.

    Wow! How have I missed this thread since Christmas?
    Your family is truly blessed!
    Will start my prayers for you, your family and Frater Silvan.

    If you would pray for my daughter we are waiting to here this month if she will be making her final vows in France on Pentecost.

    God bless your family with grace and mercy today and the days ahead! Amen

    Today I received the best birthday card and present a proud father could hope for, from my son, frater Silvan, at St. Michael's Norbertine Abbey in CA.

    Happy Birthday, Brian!

    I must be getting soft in my old age as your son's letter made me weep -- tears of joy,

    Truly God has a marvelous plan to renew the earth -- sons like yours!

    What a gift:)
