September 6, 1946 and September 6, 2006
Today was a very happy day for Mom, Dad ... 60 years of the Sacrament of Matrimony. They most certainly have been graced by God all these years.

I celebrated morning Mass at my parent's parish. I received my First Communion, Confirmation and Holy Orders at the tiny barrio church. Thirty-five years ago we had a huge celebration for their twenty-fifth anniversary.

The church was about half-filled this morning (c. 100 people) with family members, and Mom and Dad's closest friends. Another couple was also celebrating their sixtieth. It was an honor to offer them all a blessing.

Later we feasted on a nice buffet luncheon. Now it's time for a nap.
