Hi, Ceci, Finn, Gus, Kieran, and Baby Mary – I miss you, both families, EVERY day, but this afternoon I thought of you especially, when I went to the celebration of St. Joseph. YOU WOULD HAVE LOVED BEING HERE, I know!
The main street was lined with palms that looked as if they were growing oranges!
I think you would have liked some of the food, too
I always thought Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus were on a donkey, during The Flight Into Egypt, but today, it was a horse – in fact, 4 horses. Well, who knows, maybe the Holy Family had a horse? Anyhow, I’ll post a short video (of the horses) on FB –
The priest spoke (I have a video for Facebook, because it won’t work on this page). After that, people went up and had some of the special bread for the day. I was in the morning procession, where we picked up the bread and marched with it to this altar on the main street of the village!
Finn, Gus, and Kieran, this one’s for you —
