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)

IAFF Softball Tournament September 12, 1998


I didn't hit a home run.

I didn't even swing a bat.

I didn't catch a high-fly ball.

I didn't even catch a low foul ball.

I didn't have a position on the field.

I didn't even play for a single team.

And probably, I won't ever

Be able to do any of those things.

But . . .

I supported every team.

I cheered whether they won or lost.

I gave hugs to all the players and people.

I raised MDA funds using my super-soaker

And writing my "Luck for a Buck" messages.

I shared my Heartsong,

Making friends with everyone!

And then, I won-

"Individual Player Sportsmanship Award!"

. . . The most spiritual and best award

           In the tournament, and

                  In my life!
