We love the book Three Men In A Boat by Jerome K. Jerome. It is quite humorous.
There is also an old film version available.
Well, last night we did not have three men in a boat. But we did have three priests over for dinner - and it was an enjoyable evening, with much humour. It was the laughter that prompted me to remember Jerome's book.
The three priests were two Franciscans - one from our parish and newly ordained - and a priest friend from interstate.
A friend recently posted a quote from Pope John Paul II on her blog. It was " "Families, be who you are!"
I guess that we are who we are, like it or not - but sometimes I do wonder - who are we as individuals and as a family?
