Here is bulletin_2017-01-22
1. V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N: With no confirmation from the parish office we can only guess. It appears the snow-covered slopes are calling Father away to his yearly skiing vacation. There will be Communion Services instead of Masses this week. So, in the spirit of the moment we can say to the Sheep in Exile, “All ye, all ye in free. At least for this week.” And for those not familiar with the expression here is an explanation from Quara.com:
General consensus among people who study things like this is that “Olly olly oxen free” is a mutation of something like “All ye out come in free.” (Meaning, back four centuries ago when we have the first known games of hide-and-seek) that anyone still hiding (out) can come back without getting tagged (free).
2. SALT: We hope to write a special post on the item entitled Proposed Virginia Amendment to Protect Impoverished Families on page three of this week’s bulletin. In the meantime, you might want to check out www.S-A-L-T.org. Father must have been hanging around with some of his old SJW crowd again. Will he ever let it go?
My wife went digging into her old record collection to find something that expresses how she feels about Father’s vacation. She knows that the lyrics don’t fit the season, but boy the level of enthusiasm sure does. Listen here. We pray for Father’s safe travels and well being.
