How time flies??? Of course Father Brien had black hair when he came into my life 41 years ago. It was on December 19th < Monday > that he was ordained as a Priest 41 years ago.
Can you imagine 41 years in the Priesthood? I have written about this near Saint person on many occassions so therefore I don't have to write a long blog for this special day! Felecitation Emery for a job well done and I pray that you'll be around for another 41 years.

I thought that I would write to you on what happened to my brother on Sunday. He
He was invited to a Christmas party where he had worked last summer.
He is Cerebral Palsy and he had found himself that job last summer which was very good for him.
It got him out of the house and he did what he loves to do best, socialize!
Since this party was in Shediac, he had to take the bus from Saint John to Shediac because his Mom & Dad are still in that due to Dad's illness.
He arrived on time and had a ball at the party.
In the morning he visited with Mom and Dad before she dropped him off at the bus stop.
The bus should of left at 3 o'clock in the afternoon but it didn't because it broke down.
They had to wait until 9 o'clock before they boarded another bus that came
from Nova Scotia.
In all of that time the passengers were not even offered a sandwich.
They arrived in Saint John after 11'oclock and the only thing my brother had to eat besides his breakfast was a bag of chips that he had brought with him.
He's an very easy going and he was alright with it but where has customer service gone?
They were given nothing for their supper or not even a free ride for the future.
The Bus Line should change their slogan, it should read, IF WE DON'T GET YOU THERE ON TIME THEN TOUGH!
GOD WILL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES;
THERE SHALL BE NO MORE DEATH, NOR SORROW, NOR
CRYING. THERE SHALL BE NO MORE PAIN, FOR THE
FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY.
( REVELATION 21:4 *NKJV )
If you are suffering from the loss of a loved one this
the following message is for you. Also if you are not suffering
from that loss, but know of someone who is, why not forward
this message to them. For it has ministered to many over the
past few years! It is called:
"My First Christmas In Heaven"
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like Heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas
choir up here. I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices
bring. For it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me, I see the pain inside your heart
But I am not so far away, We really aren't apart.
So be happy for me, dear ones, You know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I sent you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do.
For I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
