    Hi Kathy,
    As a part time writer and a full time priest though retired I have often come across your commentary in ”Give Us This Day” and have been inspired. God bless you, Father Leonard Peterson..

    Hi, Kathy! I read your reflection on today’s scripture readings in “Give Us This Day” and loved the way you used the dance theme. How creative and meaningful! By the way, Mary Ann Figlino is a friend of mine.
