On Called by Name Fr. Kyle Schnippel shares a story from Whispers in the Loggia  .  This is on of those stories that made my heart happy while bringing tears to my eyes.  Msgr Ed Petty passed away last week.  From the Homily at his funeral mass there was this:

For Ed, Catholicism was thoroughly fun. And real fun is being a part of something greater than yourself. Belonging to the church is fun because it expands beyond the limits of this world. Ed knew the thrill of being a part of something that brings us together with all the angels and saints—the worship of almighty God in spirit and in truth….

I love that thought.  The joy of being part of something so wonderful and magnificent.  We are made for sacrifice and love.  Hope, joy, faith and love.
