Im sorry not to have posted anything till now.  Online resources have been somewhat limited.  To follow up on what I wrote for the bulletin last Tuesday -- Wed. thru Fri. we were on a road trip to western Guatemala where Fr. Joe served in his earlier years.  He met many people he knows.  The trip was kind of tough because of mudslides and speed bumps (this would be equivalent to having speed bumps on I-55).  We took it easy over the weekend and attended two of Fr. Joes four weekend Masses.  It was gratifying to see big crowds of people of all ages.  Today we toured the original Spanish settlement, Guatemala Antigua, where St Brother Pedro lived in the 17th century -- he was the first Guatemalan canonized, in 2002.  Looking ahead to a fierce night of Scrabble games.
