How wonderful. May God bless you Luigi Daniele and VetA
for your dedication.

Hear us, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, and graciously send your holy angel from heaven to watch over, to cherish, to protect, to abide with, and to defend all those joining religious society especially for Luigi and VetA , Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Thank you. :slight_smile:

Just to be clear, I am the happily married father of 4. I am joining the Oblates of my monastery as a lay person (ie, not as a religious). Think of it as a Third Order:)

You guys probably already knew that, but I wanted to be clear:)

Congratulations, Luigi Daniele!

I saw below your signature that you are a ‘Habs’ fan…that’s Montreal Canadiens to the rest of you. So am I! I got some bummed out that they couldn’t make the Stanley Cup Finals this year. ‘Les Canadiens Sont La’! There’s always next year for another run at the Cup!

Me, too. But this season was still magical. They need a couple of more good players, and they will be a true force.

Forza Gionta!

Yes, they do-but I was upset on how the fans in Montreal caused a riot in the downtown area and used the celebration as a excuse to trash and loot stores! I thought Montrealers had more class!

But then, there was the Rocket Richard riot back in the 1950s....

I always liked the Canadiens. I remember the 'Flying Frenchmen' days with Henri Richard, Jean Beliveau, Yvan Cournoyer, Guy LaPointe, Guy LaFleur....and Ken Dryden. I even got to go to a game at the old Forum in 1976! I was up in the 'nosebleed section' though...but it was pretty cool to be in a 'temple' of hockey! :D ;) :p

Sorry if it seems I'm 'hijacking' this thread...but I'm a big fan of 'Les Canadiens'!

Yes, if you have the nuns' address, write to them. They should forward it to whomever is head of the group.

When I was in the OCDS, I knew some of the members of the Buffalo group. They came to the October retreat that was held in Syracuse. Nice people....
