It’s Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement. Although I’m not Jewish, I like the concept of a Day of Reflection and Redemption. It seems to be similar to Confession in Catholicism. With Atonement, you are revisiting the things that are troubling you that no one knows about besides you. Baring your soul and seeking forgiveness for past mistakes in judgment. We all make mistakes. We all fail. This is reconciling!
TENNIS PRO REILLY OPELKA FINED by USTA for holding a pink cloth bag!
When tennis pros were asked about it some replies were, “YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS!,” by John McEnroe. And that’s “WINNING UGLY” by Brad Gilbert. Others wondered, whether the bag was “OPEN,” by Andre AGASSI.
Franco has created beautiful new hand-painted medals of the United Hearts of Jesus and Mary. They are available to order now, but they will not be mailed until I get back home to New Orleans. I’m going to add some sort of trinket from Rome to these orders. I am going to Rome for a few days next week.
The takeaway message is that we are all connected, in many more ways than we even realize. Who would have ever dreamed that by having a NOLA tee shirt, we would be “Representing” for New Orleans, the Pelicans, and hearing Frenchmen singing John Boutte’s New Orleans songs, just a few kilometers away from where the early Vatican existed in Avignon, France? That is, until Saint Catherine of Siena, helped return the Papacy to Rome.
Sarah Smiled! Greetings from Venasque, France! A saintly surprise and a wonderfully kind lady who brought happy laughter today!
Saint Sarah’s story comes from the Old Testament. Her story is steeped in Jewish History. Sarah was a Convert from Paganism and the first woman to follow the Faith of Abraham.
Come by and meet Emily and my niece Casey, whom you have read about before. She’s the one who has the son, Dean, who looked at me looking at his Mom, Casey and said, “Look! Uncle Rob loves my Mom!” That was one of those special moments that came from nowhere “out of the blue.”
Look forward to getting this truly special souvenir – this is one of the best we’ve ever sent, if not the very best. Rob found the medals he is sharing with y’all only steps away from Saint Peter’s Square & Borgo Pio ( Rob’s favorite street that offers so many nice items for sale ).

We’re on our pilgrimage and thought we’d share a fun interactive quiz where there are actual correct answers, unlike the "Who’s Your Saint Quizzes" we answer with ideas and suggestions. No wrong answers, no wrong responses, just a heartfelt conversation is what we offer with the Who’s Your Saint Quiz! That’s why we fall behind sometimes. We give our Replies to Your Quiz, a thoughtful reply!
