A Glance Back Over Sixty Years

   On the occasion (June the second) of the sixtieth anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood, may I give public and very humble thanks to Almighty God for His endless forbearance and merciful indulgence in the face of what can only be described as at best an utterly mediocre response to His Urgent Love. In whatever time His gracious Providence may still allow me, I pray that a slumbering and lukewarm soul may be quickened to a worthier ardor. And I herewith give voice to my abiding gratitude for the kindnesses shown to me over these many years by so immense a multitude of the friends of God. He will surely reward you for your charity. May God's only-begotten Son, through His suffering and death, bring us all one day to rejoice forever in His Kingdom.
