An e-mail I recently received from my grandfather, now in his 90s:
"Thank you, John, for the kind words. I have been a happy Catholic most of my life, and have such protection from God and also have been fortunate to have so manly beautiful friends.
I am still indebted to The Sisters of St. Joseph for my grade school faith formation. There was none at home but the good sisters did it. Love you all. -Grandpa."
