Leslie and I live in the Philadelphia area. Every night there are news stories on TV related to the visit by Pope Francis and the World Meeting of Families. The excitement is palpable! I am reminded of the season of Advent – we wait and prepare. Anticipation grows! Although there is much to do and plan – transportation, pet care arrangements, work and such, we are trying to stay focused on the purpose – to share, pray and celebrate our families, with an extended hand of support to other families. In these final days of preparation, our goal is to focus and remain centered. We are looking forward to meeting the many visitors heading to Philadelphia!
