The Last Time...

I have been celebrating a lot of “lasts”. Maybe you have had the experience of moving house, or when you get married, you celebrate the last time you do things in the old house or as a single. I had my last supper, slept in this bed for the last time, and soon will walk out this door for the last time.

As a legionary, you move around quite a bit. This isn’t the first time I thought about the last time I do things in a legionary house. But this is different. Now I’m not going from one legionary house to another. I’m leaving. But the journey is not yet over.

I may not be blogging as often as I would like from now on. But I don’t intend on stopping. There is still so much more that has to be done. Certainly I will spend most of my time just being with my family. Each day and every minute will be precious. One thing is for sure; being able to visit more often, this will not be the last time.


  1. Father,

    Enjoy -no savor - the time with your family. I truly hope you continue to blog your journey. It has been a gift of sadness and joy sharing this with us.

  2. Have fun with your family! We´ll be celebrating for you and praying that you experience from now on, the peace and joy that you are supposed to live in Christ from your vocation as a priest.

  3. We are praying for you and we are so happy for you and your family.

    We know this is not easy, but we so admire your courage and strength.

    Just food for thought, we, the faithful, would LOVE to have you in the Lansing diocese of Michigan, sleep on that one Father!

    Love and prayers to you.

    Jennifer and Gene B.
