Birthday wishes for two special people
Today is my youngest daughter, Sophia's, tenth birthday. She is our millennium child. Can you believe that children born in 2000 are 10! Happy birthday dear, sweet, lovely little lady! One of our favorite things we do together is listen to Abba. Her baptism name is Rose, her confirmation name is Mary, as in the Blessed Virgin. So, Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us. St. Rose of Lima, pray for us.
It is also the birthday of His Excellency, Archbishop George Niederauer, who ordained me a deacon. He turns 74 today. While the Abba tribute is certainly not appropriate for him, I didn't want to let the opportunity pass to publicly wish him a happy birthday, too.
Speaking of San Francisco, one of our wedding anniversary traditions is to watch So I Married an Axe Murderer.
Two other birthdays of note: the U.S. flag and the U.S. Army.
