Why me? Why the Assumptionists? PDF Print E-mail

By Pat Haggerty

For the past several years, I have been integrally involved with the Assumptionist Newsletter based out of Brighton, Massachusetts.  I have loved writing for and musing about the Assumptionist community here in the United States.  Much of what I have done deals with telling the stories of some of the devoted Assumptionist clergy.  I have also recounted events taking place at St. Anne-St. Patrick in Fiskdale, MA.  This is a long-standing Assumptionist parish in Central Massachusetts, which I have been a part of for over 35 years.

Pat HaggertyI have always been a fan of Robert Frost.  One of my favorite poems is “The Road Not Taken.”  It speaks to who I am, where I have been, and where I am going.  Please don’t get the wrong impression!  I have never done grandiose things like—been a missionary in a foreign land, traveled the world, or even run a marathon.  More aptly speaking, my version of the Frost poem would be entitled “The Winding Path.”

I was born into a loving, Catholic home sixty-three years ago.  It is hard for me to imagine that I am that old.  I still have the spirit of a much younger person.  Maybe that’s delusion instead of reality or perhaps it is my ever-optimistic spirit that “we are only as old as we think!”  Right!
