    Padraig, interestig that today you should post the image of the hands holding a flame. I have a little bronze statue of St. Timothy sitting on the cornerstone holding a flame in his hands. It is a replica of a carving by one of our parish priests, Father Gerry.

    For this reason, I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that you have through the imposition of my hands.
    2 Timothy 1: 6


    Today my little son Dustin Augustus was Confirmed and made his first Holy Communion. I was filled with joy to see his excitement. Tonight, I asked him his thoughts. He said, "I felt good. I felt like God was very close to me."

    A good day, thanks be to God!
    St. Timothy, pray for us!

    I wasn't sure what the hands meant, Darrell, to be honest I just liked the flame moving. Congratulations on Dustin's confirmation. It great that he'll have those great graces moving forward inot adulthood!! :)

    Darrell,

    Super Duper! Congratulate Dustin for me and ask him to pray for my son, Daniel, if you will. It had been almost 2 years since Danny had received Holy Communion; however, he finally overcame his fear of gagging and received again this past Sunday. It's been a long haul; I wept for joy. Perhaps Dustin could pray or offer up a Communion so that Danny will no longer have any problems or hesitations due to fear.

    Safe in the Hearts of Jesus and Mary!
