There is a stranger in us - a naked, needy, hungry portion of ourselves - unwanted and neglected whom we must embrace. In this way, we welcome Christ into our lives, for he is the Unwanted One, “the least of the brethren” within us, the Samaritan. By embracing what is unwanted in us we embrace Him and in this way we become whole. We reach out, but it is the Despised One in use who actually saves. (Isaiah 53:3)
- Fr. Antony

Dear Photograph,There he stood, side by side, with Grandma Margaret over fifty years ago. The handsome young airman, my uncle Jimmy, smiling for one more photo before he left his home in Berkeley, California to serve his country overseas in Germany. Every veteran was also someone’s son or daughter, brother or sister, grandson or grandaughter and every one of us have hearts full of pride and gratitude for all veterans everywhere who sacrificed so much. We remember you all on Veteran’s Day and my Uncle Jimmy. Grandma Margaret was so proud of you and so are we….always.Linda
