RVK (Rhyme Ville Kings) Hit the stage!

In the town I am from one has to seek out local entertainment. This evening it just happened to be my brother in law,Mark, nephew Caleb, Hector and Filipe. They make up the group Rhyme Ville Kings...There was a benefit concert at the local highschool for Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation. Area entertainment graced the stage to display their musical talents. We began our evening with Mass, dinner at the local mexican restaurant, Su Casa and then entertainment to benefit the rehabilitation hospital. I am going to post a RVK video because these men are quite impressive. It was a night that us locals come together and appreciate the talents that God has besotwed on these folks.

Thoughts of my day...I really had to have these today

There are more tears shed over answered prayers than over unanswered prayers.
Saint Theresa of Jesus

I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.
Mother Teresa

An unstable pilot steers a leaking ship, and the blind is leading the blind straight to the pit. The ruler is like the ruled.
Saint Jerome, Letter

There was a awesome priest by the name of Fr. Scott Hayne S.J.C., on EWTN this morning. I was watching the Mass and he is this big booming guy, with this huge deep voice and a very good homily. I want to contact EWTN for a copy of his Mass. The homily was on the Gospel reading from Mk 1:21-28 where Jesus speaks with a commanding
voice to cast out the unclean spirit...he (the unclean spirit) leaves convulsing.
Fr. Haynes' homily was very clear about the exsistance of angels. It was so informative I had the family listen to it. If you are interested in Fr.Hayne he actively composes liturgical music for the choirs of St. John Cantius. Ordained in 2007 for the Archdiocese of Chicago as a member of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, Fr. Haynes serves as Associate Pastor of St. John Cantius Church. He is so dead on with our political leaders, youth, weekend only Catholics and the Sacraments! God does have is holy priests evangelizing...thank your priests for their vocations!
