My Prayer Journal and Veterans’ Day PDF Print E-mail

By Pat Haggerty

Years ago I started writing in a prayer journal.  It all started when I was reading The Cup of Our Life by Joyce Rupp.  The reader was encouraged to keep a journal and write reflections on questions from the text.  So, I did!  That was the beginning of what has turned into my own little book of reflections and prayers.

“Small Things with Great Love” PDF Print E-mail

This week I attended the funeral of my husband’s Uncle Franny.  Franny was a wonderful individual who passed away at the age of 87.  He had lived his whole life in Lebanon, New Hampshire.  He was a man of integrity, generosity and simplicity.  He was extremely proud of his French-Canadian heritage and loved sharing stories of his early childhood and of his mother and father.  He loved making French-Canadian pork pies (tourtières), and he loved spending time in his expansive garden.  More than gardening, he took great joy in sharing his produce with family, friends, and the Senior Center.

Falling Leaves - Uplifted Hearts PDF Print E-mail

It’s official!  Fall is here.  The “autumnal equinox” has come and gone, and the calendar keeps marching ahead.  As a New Englander through and through, I have always loved this season:  the vibrant foliage, the apple picking, the crisp mornings.  It’s something I wouldn’t want to give up.  It keeps me going; it brings me life!

Labor Day: A Time of Celebration and Transition PDF Print E-mail

By Pat Haggerty

For many years, I viewed Labor Day as a time of transition.  I was in education, and Labor Day was the demarcation line between summer vacation and the start of school.  There was something both sad and energizing about this time.  I was sad to see the leisure days of summer come to an end, but I was energized thinking about my new students with all of their hopes, dreams, and challenges.  Experiencing Labor Day was like experiencing New Year’s Day in the middle of the year.

St. Ignatius and a Surprise PDF Print E-mail

By Pat Haggerty

There is something so wonderful about serendipitous events.  They sneak up on us and bring us unexpected surprise and wonder.  Such was the event that took place for me while on a visit to Los Angeles.
