    although mine is now 12.

    Hurrah for naturalization parties! Unfortunately, our guest speaker today decided that we hadn't talked about abortion enough lately. I was glad that I had done the bulletin for the week... parishioners left with some quotes from the Pope's interview with America Magazine, where he says in response to a question about what church needs most now:

    "I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; it needs nearness, proximity. I see the church as a field hospital after battle. It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars! You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else. Heal the wounds, heal the wounds.... And you have to start from the ground up."

    Our country can survive war, disease, and poverty... what it cannot do without is justice.
