Ship’s Bow

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 6:38 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket!  After witnessing a gorgeous sunrise a few moments ago at Dowses Beach here in Osterville, I must report that the feeling of summer has arrived on the Cape, with temperatures expected to be in the upper 60’s to near 70 degrees!  Can you say sunblock?  I have the privilege to sing today at my little seaside chapel called, “Our Lady of the Assumption”.  Today is first communion for all of the little tikes who live in this tiny village founded centuries ago.  I am always pleased to see children gaining a foothold on Faith, for it was this same Faith that helped me through what some might describe as an untenable situation.  The Catholic Church has been battered by the scandals that we all have heard about recently in Europe and to that I offer no explanation, for it does not deserve one.  However, when I turn my attention to what the Catholic Church, and most notably a powerful order called, “The Little Sisters of the Poor”, and the Love and care they gave my grandmother in southern California up until she passed away at the age of 104, I must conclude that we don’t necessarily KNOW the whole situation, and thus, must not condemn the entirety of the institution.  As with politics, we will soon be saturated in the Sunday morning news programs (if you are anything like me), and upon viewing the programs we will come to the conclusion that there are going to always be a few rotten apples in the barrel.  On that point, if you take a gander back at history, this country has made great strides in civil rights and although we have a long way to go, we have turned the corner and perhaps do not even know the LIGHT is on its’ way.  One does not have to go far to find GOOD NEWS.  It is all around you.  The abundance of LIFE is so clear and as one who almost lost his life in 2003, I can attest it is GOOD to be alive.  “Taking Fog to Nantucket”, a book I recently finished, is a story to that end (takingfogtonantucket.com) an end that was actually a beginning. When I watch these youngsters take that a small wafer, a symbol as the bread of life, I am reminded that we are all children of God, that, as Audrey Hepburn stated many moons ago, every human being needs to be remembered, redeemed and rescued, for that is why we are here–“To Love each other, as I have loved you…” It doesn’t get any simpler than that.  Have a blessed Sunday folks!  Peace~ M
