The Father will give you whatever you ask for in my name

Fr. Dennis homily from last Sunday. Fr. Dennis began with this:
"The Father will give you whatever you ask for in my name. If you have ever really prayed for something, this story is for you. If you have ever grieved for someone who died a tragic death, this story is for you. And if you believe in the resurrection, this story is for you."
Beautiful story about how God listens to our prayers. It is a true story that happened to Fr. Dennis.

A present for Mary

Maureen put together these two (now three) beautiful videos. I took the pictures in Victoria, British Columbia. 

They are a gift to Our Blessed Mother Mary from the both of us. In her month of May.

Trees in Victoria

I'm afraid I went a bit nuts on the trees. They were just so big. And beautiful. And old. And sometimes mossy. Most of these pictures are from Butchart Gardens and Cathedral Grove.

I tried to capture the sheer size of the trees, but it was difficult.

Because the air is so moist you'll notice that many of the trees are covered in moss.

You'll also notice fallen trees, sometimes with their roots out of the ground. These fallen trees are all from Cathedral Grove.

I don't know but I think that some of God's most magnificent creations are the trees.

This growth is growing along the bark from a fallen tree.

These two trees are fallen from a different time. Not sure how this could even happen.

You can see the fallen tree with its root in the foreground.
