This past weekend I had the pleasure of presenting the Revelation In A Day seminar at Good Samaritan Catholic Church in Ambridge, Pennsylvania and I want to thank all of those who worked so hard to make my time there truly memorable. The priests and parishioners of Good Samaritan are a beautiful example of the meaning of 1 Corinthians 12:12, "For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ."
The people of Good Samaritan each brought their gifts and talents together through months of planning, weeks of preparation and hours of hard work to make a sunny Saturday afternoon explode with a passion for Scripture for anyone who had an yearning to learn more about the Book of Revelation, and for that I want to thank each and everyone of you.
First, a very big Thank You to Susan DiPietro for her vision, passion and energy! Thank you Susan for all your hard work. You are such a gift to His kingdom. Thank you Henrietta and Mikos for bringing me to your wonderful parish. Thank you to Rita and her crew who worked tirelessly to prepare an elegant dinner on Friday and feed 400 with an amazing lunch on Saturday. Thank you to Keith and Joy for their time chauffeuring and showing us the city and thank you to Abby who saw to it that I had all I needed for my talk. Thank you Jymm and Harry for the gifts, the nails and the icon. I wish I had the names of all those wonderful volunteers in blue, for they kept the day flowing perfectly. To all of you in blue, Thank You! And, anyone else I am missing... Thank You!
Thank you Fr. Joe for your leadership, your parish a beautiful example of community, and Fr. John thank you for celebrating Mass and giving all of us the courage to truly look to see that which is in the inside of our brothers an sisters in Christ.
Thank you to all of you who had a part in making the day so great. You are all an inspiration to me.
