The Shrine needs the final numbers on Friday, October 21st. I will wait until the afternoon to email them. Please contact me if you or your friends want to come to I can include you in the final count!
Peacefully do at each moment what at that moment ought to be done. If we do what each moment requires, we will eventually complete God’s plan, whatever it is. We can trust God to take care of the master plan when we take care of the details.

May the Lord give us an incredible day with Him and one another!
