This evening some of the saints of God were busy at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton parish. While a parishioner was hard at work framing out a wall for the back of our stage, the Parish Spiritual Life Committee met to discuss a wide-ranging agenda including planning as far as next Lent and Easter. Two young men who are working on their Eagle Scout projects were busy in separate parts of the building. Jacob Saar presented his project to the parish Knights of Columbus Council, describing his plans for a prayer path on the parish campus. Down the hall and around the corner, Raymond Arke was videotaping veterans in order to document their living histories and present the edited video to the Library of Congress. My Eagle Scout project seems tame in comparison to the planning and work these scouts are now required to execute. Every day God humbles me by placing me in the midst of saints in this wonderful parish.
