Thought of the Day

 "Nothing is impossible to God" St. Gabriel said "the power of the Holy Spirit will come upon you" to Mary. How else could she become the mother of Jesus?


(A wee poem from Mattie Stepanek (born 17.07.1990)

The Gift of a Name April 15, 2000


My name is     Mattie Joseph Thaddeus Stepanek.

My name fits my personality  Like my skin fits my body.

Mattie is from Matthew,         Which means "Gift of God."

I wasn't supposed to live,        Yet, here I am a decade old.

Joseph is a good strong family name,And represents a

Happy and peaceful death.

Thaddeus is my Confirmation name,

And it means "loving and friendly."

I took the name because         St. Jude Thaddeus is the

Patron saint of hopeless situations,     Like my life

and because     I can share it with my brother Jamie,

Whose Confirmation name is Jude.

Although my last name, Stepanek,

Doesn't well-represent my      Irish and Scottish ancestry,

It is unique and so it is perfect     To top off my other names.

My name is     Mattie Joseph Thaddeus Stepanek.

I am a gift of God,      I am a strong family person,  

I am loving and friendly,        I am unique in life, and          

I am proud to have      My special name.
