Welcome Back!

My good friend, and my Mother's most solicitous and caring parish priest, Father John Boyle, is back in the world of blogging. Formerly the notorious "South Ashford Priest," Father John's new blog is called "Caritas in Veritate" - I wonder if he got that idea from anyone important? Judging from the comments on other blogs, many people are very happy that he is back, this infrequent blogger included! Father John will be here with me in Vermont in a couple of weeks as he begins his vacation; unfortunately he can only stay a few days before he heads to another part of the USA to join his priest-brother, Father Stephen Boyle, for the rest of their break. Father John is a model parish priest and greatly impressed a number of my parishioners in my last parish when he visited. Welcome back, Father John!

"notorious" must have a different connotation over there than here! You make him sound like Clyde Barrow!

BTW, "Vacation." See, you're becoming Yankeefied and you don't even know it. :-D

Even as I wrote the word "vacation" I realized the full horror of what was happening.

You'll be whistling "Stars and Stripes forever" before you know it. Shall we chip in for the snowshoes now? OR would you prefer a skidoo?

This year "vacation" -- next year an entry for a pulled pork BBQ contest. Ya gotta start somewhere.

Soon your English friends and family will call your accent "mid-Atlantic" and southerns will suspect you are from Bahhhhston.
