At Calvary

Today we went out to Calvary Cemetery for the blessing of a new monument at the Casey plot, which features an image of Venerable Solanus Casey, the only member of the family (so far) whose cause has been introduced for sainthood. There is a great statue of Solanus on one side, and a picture of the vast Casey family on the other.
 
 
Father Ryan greeting a Capuchin priest and brother who came from Father Solanus's monastery in Detroit. Sister Anne calls them "the Caps."

 
Neither rain nor mud can deter a truly dedicated bagpiper.


I am not used to working under these conditions.
