“Let me make this perfectly clear. Those halberds are sharp. Any questions? No? Thank you very much. May God bless you, and have a nice day.”

    Yikes! I’ll be backing away now. Slowly. Where am I going? To put on a hair shirt, to pray, to give alms to the poor. Whatever you say. You are the man, er, Pope. Stay cool. Amen.

    You are a bit of an instigator, Fr. Gonzales!

    Instigator is far too mild a word!

    Father Gonzales, you are the baking powder in the biscuit batter of life.

    And while we are on the subject of biscuits, they are rather tasty with jam and a hot cup of coffee. And, they are heavenly with barbequed chicken, corn on the cob, salad…Need I bring up strawberry shortcake?

    Biscuits and gravy? Biscuits and honey! Delish! Biscuits in the morning, biscuits in the evening, biscuits at the parish festival!

    Halberds are scary. God Bless you, too. Now back away from the halberds.

    A nice short piece in the lastest Time magazine about the Pope. The article is part of a larger story about the world’s 100 most influential people.

    I remember that editor Kathleen Moran had a story written about John Paul II’s visit to the US. It ran in Palm Beach Life when she was the editor. She’s in Rhode Island now working on a book. I think she went to Providence College.

    Also, the Pawtucket Times ran an article in the Jan. 27, 1978 issue on the Latin Mass in Rhode Island.
