True to your nature, you came to me on Saturday and requested we go visit our good friend Fr. Courtney for Father's Day. You have known him since you were young. Fr. Courtney has wanted to be a priest since he was a young boy. The youngest of nine children, God placed that calling on his heart very young. He is a lover of all things beautiful and traditional. Our children have grown to love priests and are extremely fond of Fr. Courtney who stops by the house frequently. He always gives them a picture of the Divine Mercy and says, "Here is a picture of my friend." I love how they giggle. He gets a kick out of all the kids especially Zellie who has mutual affection for him. He usually gives each of them a quarter when he leaves.
