Jousting Still Dangerous
« on: August 28, 2018, 06:38:31 PM »
In 1559, King Henry II of France died from a splinter in the eye while jousting. More than 400 years later one can still die that way.

There go my plans for the long weekend.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.
Praise the Lord, for He is good, for His mercy endures forever

In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”
