The next few days are significant holy days both in the Church and personally in our family, and now for an additional reason. Will you please pray for my grandmother, who passed away this morning? As my five-year-old son said, "She's St. MeMa now." Please remember the rest of us in your prayers as well, especially my parents and aunts and uncles. There was a certain level of emotional preparedness, but the profundity of the moment is inescapable.
