As I look back on my newly-formed blog, I realize that three themes seem to be present — FAMILY, FOOD AND FAITH.
I shouldn’t be surprised. I love my Catholic faith. I adore my family. And I get excited about good food. If you throw in a good book and a baseball game then I am all set!
This entry will touch my “Big Three.”
If you love good chicken you must go to Angelo’s Restaurant on Federal Hill In Providence, Rhode Island. It has the most tender breast of chicken. Our children joke that we don’t go to Providence to see them but to get the good food. They do have a point.
My son, Matthew, stepped out into the street and took this picture on his cell phone. Technology is amazing.
And God is amazing! My heart soared as my daughter, Kerry, told me about a retreat she went on with the Pier Giorgio Frassati group of Greater New York. The retreat drew 60 young adults to Stamford, Conn. at a lovely retreat house. It is Villa Marie which is a joint effort of the Knights of Columbus and the Sisters of Life. I went online to learn more about Pier Giorgio and invite others to do the same. He is one cool saint in waiting.
Here are two helpful web sites where you can learn more about this holy man.
And when it comes to my family, well I love them to pieces. I love to talk to them about lots of things. And I learn so much from my loved ones. Of course, I still cannot re-build a car engine, even if my husband has talked to me about the two Camry engines he has brought back to life.
But I watched my daughter, Elizabeth, relish a book this summer. It was recommended to her by a wise and good Dominican.
I wanted to read it and she got it for me for my birthday.
I am just at the beginning but I really like it. It is about a serious subject but written in a clear and readable style.
I hope you get the chance to read it some day.
